  • Lastly, we think deeply and act quickly, we are persistently agile but never hasty.
Prof. Aytül Erçil,
Vispera Co-Founder & Co-CEO
After receiving my Ph.D. from Brown University in 1983, started to work at GM Research Labs. After returning to Bogazici University as a faculty member in 1988, I visited industrial establishments and tried to understand the problems they had. However, there was no such trust in us to develop high technology products in Turkey. The applied research we carried out at the university could not become products.
Dr. Ceyhun Burak Akgül,
Vispera Co-Founder & Co-CEO
I received my Ph.D. in late 2007 from two different institutions, Télécom ParisTech and Boğaziçi University, with a thesis on visual recognition. My Ph.D. work has appeared in top conferences and publications of the AI domain, including reputable AI journals such as PAMI and IJCV. and the algorithms I developed have been ranked in top positions in various competitions.
