The elderly population has not been studied much in this context, because they are thought to be relatively well-insured.

  • We outline a model of generation with revision, focusing on improving textual coherence. We argue that high quality text is more easily produced by iteratively revising and regenerating, as people do, rather than by using an architecturally more complex single pass generator.

Improving text requires associating flaws with strategies for improvement.
