He attended St. Columba's High School in New Delhi, India, where he skipped his senior year to attend the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK). At IITK, he received the First Prize for Academic Excellence in the Core Curriculum in 1981, and the B.Tech Degree as the Best Graduating Student in Electrical Engineering (EE) in 1983, both jointly. He then attended Stanford University on its inaugural Information Systems Laboratory Research Fellowship. From there, he received the M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees in EE in 1985 and 1987, respectively.
Between Stanford and FullView, he was with Bell Labs Research, where over two summer months of 1993, he wrote an algorithm to automatically verify signatures executed on signature pads like in use today. His work outperformed by a factor of 10, three ongoing competing multi-year team efforts at Bell Labs — by its Neural Networks, Robotics and Statistics Departments. The President of Bell Labs thereon afforded him unfettered freedom, which led to FullView — and also for this, he won a Bell-Labs-wide competition on applications of credit cards with chips. In 1989, he was concurrently on the faculty of EE at Princeton University.
He is the author of A Guided Tour of Computer Vision (Addison-Wesley, 1993), a text adopted by several schools, including by Stanford for its PhD qualifying exam in computer science. He has won recognition for his publications and patents; prevailed in every intellectual-property dispute he has partaken, whether as a litigant or an expert; and given invited talks worldwide, including at CMU, Google, Harvard, IIT Delhi, INRIA SA, MIT, Princeton, Stanford, Technion, TU Delft, UBC Vancouver, UC Berkeley and Yale. He was on the Editorial Board of IEEE PAMI from 1994 to 1998, and was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 2004.
