At Luminovo, we are all deep learning natives. Our current team is made up of best-in-class engineers from Stanford University, ETH Zurich, TUM and CDTM. After stints at Google, Intel, and McKinsey, our two founders met at Stanford University and decided to relocate to Munich in 2017 to help European businesses accelerate the adoption of deep learning.

The name Luminovo (“new light”) is a play on the famous quote by our machine learning professor Andrew Ng: “AI is the new electricity.” We could not agree more and see it as our mission to help our clients get the wiring right and enable them to turn on the lights.

We love to work with exceptional people on interesting problems. So far, our clients include startups from Silicon Valley, mid-sized German companies, as well as established DAX corporations.
