I give motivations to understand string loop corrections in gauge and gravitational backgrounds. One technical motivation is that they provide a generalization of and improved understanding of Feynman loop diagrams in gauge and gravitational fields. This can also be of some interest in condensed matter theory. I review some recent work by others, particularly in Anti-de-Sitter space, and give highlights of some of my work in progress with physicists and with mathematicians.
