Lucinity’s Achievement

The Association of Business and Economists (FVH) elaborated that Lucinity stood out due to its focus on taking the ingenuity and creativity of humans and empowering them through the use of AI and automation. This is because Lucinity has been working on software solutions that allow banks and FinTech to investigate and fight financial crimes more effectively with the help of AI solutions, primarily the Luci copilot.

Luci is a generative AI solution for financial institutions which made its debut in June 2023. Luci is tailored to the world of financial crime investigations and works with data in a secure environment.
