EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A $400,000 gift from a former student will honor an expert in pattern recognition, computer vision and biometric recognition with the creation of an endowed fund at Michigan State University.

The East Lansing school announced this week that the Anil K. Jain Endowed Graduate Fellowship is an anonymous cash gift from a businessman who was a visiting scholar in computer graphics and image processing in Jain’s laboratory in the early 1980s.

The fellowship fund will support doctoral-level research on pattern recognition, computer vision and biometric recognition. Jain is a University Distinguished Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University. He says he’s grateful for the gift.

The gift is part of the Michigan State University’s Empower Extraordinary Campaign.
