Luminance collects two more awards for its document review software
Machine learning technology firm Luminance has been awarded two accolades at the annual Techies Awards for its pioneering technology, which is helping revolutionise the legal industry by assisting with document review using artificial intelligence (AI).
The National Technology Awards celebrate excellence in the field of innovation across a variety of sectors – this year, there were a record number of entries from across the public and private sectors.
The independent panel chose Luminance as the most “Innovative Enterprise Product of the Year”, due to its proprietary machine learning technology and resulting impact on the legal profession.
Luminance’s artificial intelligence reads and understands legal documents like the human brain and has already enhanced the work of legal teams across 150 organisations in 40 countries globally, says the firm. The artificial intelligence software helps lawyers review documents and conduct due diligence by using AI “to rifle through reams of documents” rather than relying solely on document reviewers or junior lawyers.
This year the company for won awards for “Best Use of AI” and “AI Innovator of the Year” – bringing its total number of Techies to five.
Now in its fourth year, the Techies Awards recognise and celebrate success in the UK tech sector – “rewarding the best and brightest technology from across disciplines”.

The wins also mark the latest in a string of 2019 achievements for Luminance – the company now holds more than 20 awards. In the last month, the company has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise and two American Business Awards for Innovation.
“We are honoured to receive the esteemed Queen’s Award for Enterprise”, added Luminance CEO Emily Foges.
