Computer Graphics research has long been dominated by the interests of large film, television and social media companies, forcing other, more safety-critical applications (e.g., medicine, engineering, security) to repurpose Graphics algorithms originally designed for entertainment.

Shiori Sagawa, PhD candidate
Department of Computer Science, Stanford University

Machine learning systems are powerful, but they can fail due to distribution shifts: mismatches in the data distribution between training and deployment. Distribution shifts are ubiquitous and have real-world consequences: models can fail on subpopulations (e.g., demographic groups) and on new domains unseen during training (e.g., new hospitals).
