Ersin Yumer

Ersin Yumer is a Machine Learning Lead at Argo AI in the San Francisco Bay Area. His specialties include machine learning, computer vision, and computer graphics. He develops cutting edge technology in those fields that are integrated into products, and he is published in top conferences in relevant fields such as NIPS, SIGGRAPH, CVPR, and ECCV.

Yumer received his B.S. from the Middle East Technical University in 2007 before obtaining his M.S. there in 2010. He then went on to get his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 2015.

Before getting his M.S., Yumer spent seven months as an engineering intern at Rolls-Royce, specializing in mathematical modeling and computational analysis of turbine dynamics. While studying for his master’s, he worked as a research engineer at TUBITAK doing mathematical and computational modeling of physical phenomena.

Then, while finishing up with his Ph.D., Yumer spent five months as a software engineer intern at Google in New York in 2014 doing computer graphics, 3D vision, and machine learning research. The following summer, he spent three months as a research intern at Adobe in the San Francisco Bay Area doing the same thing, and followed that up with three more months at Google in New York again.

In June of 2015, Yumer took a position with Adobe as a senior research scientist. At Adobe, he led machine learning research for a document cloud group. He also developed a 3D computer vision research agenda from which several technologies were shipped in various Adobe products (

Yumer took his position as a Machine Learning Lead at Argo AI in February of 2018.
