Robin AI is an exciting, venture-backed technology startup whose mission is to dramatically reduce the cost and complexity of legal advice. Backed by top London based VCs, Forward Partners and Episode 1, Robin uses a combination of human and artificial intelligence to review and edit contracts and is building software to fundamentally change the legal industry forever.
Robin was established in March 2019 by CEO Richard Robinson (a former City lawyer) and CTO James Clough (a theoretical physicist who works in Machine Learning). They have since assembled a talented and diverse team of legal, software and machine learning engineers to build the next generation of contracting tools.
At Robin AI, we create groundbreaking products that are transforming legal teams. Our work is multi-disciplinary and brings together the best talent in engineering, AI and the law. Our current product uses machine learning to read and comprehend written contracts, assesses whether they adhere to our customers’ preferred positions, and then automatically amends them. But our ambitions go way beyond reviewing contracts – we want to build technology that changes the way companies all over the world do deals.
The legal industry has, thus far, been slow to embrace artificial intelligence. In part this is because the law is a naturally conservative industry, one we think is ready for disruption. But it is also because existing technology has struggled to tackle some of the unique challenges this field presents. Data is usually confidential and so datasets are limited in size. And the legal and financial stakes are high, meaning that high model accuracy and interpretability are especially important. General NLP approaches can perform poorly on legal tasks due to the unusual and precise meanings of particular words and phrases. All of these factors mean that we at Robin AI face a unique set of technical challenges that can only be tackled by creative and cross-disciplinary thinking.
Our offices are at WeWork in Bank, where you will have a dedicated desk in our private office space, which you are free to personalize as you wish. We also have access to all of the amenities within WeWork including a pool table, table football, table tennis, co-working space, free barista-made coffee and free beer in the evenings.
