Eric Veach was awarded an Academy Award this weekend for his PhD thesis contributions regarding multiple importance sampling. Pretty cool! Actors Michael B Jordan and Kristen Bell presented the award and mention MCPT.

Ah yes, the un-unified theory...

It is interesting though to hear Kristen Bell use the word "path tracing". Thanks for sharing!
