[Context] Research on short-text generation is of great importance in improving the efficiency of reading and writing, the impact of communication and guidance, the satisfaction of intelligent human-computer interaction and the capacity for machine semantic comprehension. However, short-text generation technology faces many difficulties and challenges due to the weakness of generation technology and the increasing complexity of realistic implementation requirements.[Methods] The neural network based generation method is a key artificial intelligence technology that has accomplished several pioneering achievements in short-text summary, dialogue generation, text generation of comments, poetry creation, and other linguistic tasks. [Results] This paper presents the research status and development of neural network based short-text generation technology in the aspects of the generation model, goal, and evaluation metric, providing a guide for further research into short-text generation technology. [Conclusions] we summarized the difficulties, challenges and trends of neural network based short-text generation technology.

Key words: Natural Language Generation (NLG), neural network model, short-text, evaluation method
