Anuj's Thesis at Library of Congress

Recently the Mohan family was informed of some welcoming news from the Library of Congress. Anuj’s Master Thesis titled “Example-Based Object Detection in Images by Components” which he wrote with his advisers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Tomaso Poggio and Constantine Papageorgiou is part of the breathtaking collection of archives at the Library. The paper that was published in an IEEE journal is housed in a bound volume of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, Volume 23, January-June 2001.

The Library of Congress which is nation’s Oldest Federal Cultural Institution, serves as the research arm of Congress. The library’s mission is to make its resources available and useful to the Congress and American people and to sustain and preserve a universal collation of knowledge and creativity for future generation.

We are proud and honored for Anuj’s work being a part of the largest library in the world. For the family that comes after Anuj, those who might have heard of him but never met him, and the rest who can still learn from his findings, this has created a sacred and long lasting symbol which will in a way has immortalized not only his research but Anuj as well. We hope to come with our children and grandchildren one day to introduce Anuj to them and his cutting edge research.
