Visual expression is an integral part of our digital world. More accurate, more realistic, and richer imagery that is better aligned with the human visual system has proven beneficial across a diverse set of uses and industries. For example, imagery in medical research, geophysical exploration, motion pictures, product design, and cosmology can be quickly rendered into rich, realistic visuals.
