Do Deep Generative Models Know What They Don't Know?
"A neural network deployed in the wild may be asked to make predictions for inputs that were drawn from a different distribution than that of the training data. A plethora of work has demonstrated that it is easy to find or synthesize inputs for which a neural network is highly confident yet wrong. "
Fluid Annotation: An Exploratory Machine Learning–Powered Interface for Faster Image Annotation
