Redesigned account handling

In 2019, Luminoso redesigned account handling in Daylight and combined the former User and Account Settings pages into a unified Settings page. These changes:

  • Clarify roles and permissions

  • Make account management more intuitive at every level

  • Introduce better password rules

  • Manage API tokens more securely

This update replaces "accounts" with the clearer designation of “workspaces,” and introduces "organizations." Workspaces allow users in organizations to have permission levels for each workspace. With this infrastructure change, you can set up separate workspaces so that users only see as much data as they need. For instance, one user in an organization may need to create projects in one workspace, but only has to view data in another.

With this release, you no longer view or manage short-lived API tokens in the Daylight application, since this type of token is only for active browser sessions. Now, you can create as many long-lived API tokens for authenticating integrations as you need and tokens are only visible immediately after their creation.

Read more in our article on the new roles and actions in Daylight and or the guide to the Settings page.


Natural Language Processing: enhanced handling of emoji variations

With this release, we introduce updates to our natural language processing that help Daylight handle emoji variations better.


For example, when you search for the (“person shrugging emoji”), you now find documents that contain any variation of the person shrugging emoji, like (“man shrugging: medium-dark skin tone”). The Volume, Drivers and Galaxy visualizations now provide the total volume of any emoji that displays a person shrugging, but still preserve the details of the specific emoji variations that are used at the document excerpt level.


Flag emoji that are composed of multiple characters are now preserved as a single concept. For example, the two separate concepts of "flag piece: U" and "flag piece: S" will now be preserved as a single concept.


Science version information included in a project record’s last_build_info

Now, when you call a project record, a science version identifier is included. This string displays the version of Luminoso science at the last time the project was built.

You can compare this number against the latest available science version that displays in the statusendpoint. If your project is out-of-date, you can rebuild it using the build endpoint. For more information, read our Projects section in the API Documentation.

QuickLearn 2.0

With this release, Luminoso introduces QuickLearn 2.0 to all Daylight Cloud users. This major improvement to Luminoso’s science includes improved handling of social bias in datasets and an expansion from 150 to 300 dimensions for word embeddings. Now, your projects display major improvements in conceptual matching and handling of possible social biases.


All new Daylight projects are now built using QuickLearn 2.0. Add documents to existing projects to take advantage of QuickLearn 2.0 science. Additionally, any project you haven’t used for 6 months will be automatically upgraded to QuickLearn 2.0.

As part of QuickLearn 2.0, you’ll see:

  • Updated conceptual matches — As a result of strengthened conceptual matching, you will see more intuitive and a higher number of conceptual matches for concepts in Daylight.

  • Improved language support — QuickLearn 2.0 expands the starting vocabulary across the 15 languages Luminoso supports. This change improves accuracy in especially non-English languages and in our classification offering, Compass.

  • More precise conceptual match scores — QuickLearn 2.0 contains a larger semantic space, so concepts may be farther apart, resulting in lower concept association scores. This change is especially visible in the Volume feature.

  • Updated look to the Galaxy — The Galaxy feature is a two-dimensional representation of Daylight’s semantic space. Since the space is now larger and concepts are more related, the Galaxy now appears more round.

  • Improved score drivers — Changes to conceptual matches affect the rank of suggested drivers and a concept’s average score calculations. Overall, analysis will be more accurate.

  • Reduced bias — Enhanced understanding significantly decreases the risk of bias in natural language understanding (NLU) results, especially for categories protected from discrimination.


Edit saved concepts

With this release, you can edit your saved concepts in all analysis features. Now, the process for editing concepts in Galaxy is the same as in Volume, Sentiment, and Drivers.

Select a saved concept and click edit in the Concept details pane to access the Edit saved concept flyout. In this flyout, you can:

  • Edit a concept’s name and color

  • Create and edit compound concepts

To take action in the Edit saved concept flyout:

  • Click the X or anywhere outside the flyout to exit without saving changes.

  • Pick an option from the Color menu to change a concept’s color.

  • Type into the text field and click Save to edit a concept’s name.

  • Search a concept’s name in the Add concepts field and click Add to add concepts to a new or existing compound concept. The concept appears below the Add concepts text box.

  • Click the x next to a concept’s name in the editor to remove it from a compound concept. The concept disappears.

To delete a saved concept, click the delete icon next to the saved concept’s name.


Daylight sessions time out after 60 minutes

With this release, Daylight sessions time out after 60 minutes of inactivity. Before, Daylight sessions expired after 14 days of inactivity. This change promotes security best practices.

If you require longer access, you can generate a long-lived token for API calls using the Daylight interface on the API Tokens page under User Settings. Long-lived tokens do not expire and can be removed or changed at any time.

Unique to This Filter

We’re excited to introduce the Unique to This Filter concept selection feature. Using Unique to This Filter, you can isolate segments within projects and find concepts that are unique to this segment, relative to the rest of the project. Access the new feature in Volume, Sentiment, and Drivers.


Unique to This Filter isolates the segment you select from the rest of the project. Then, it compares the concepts within that segment as they relate to the concepts in the rest of the project. For example, if your project includes the entire United States, but you filter for customers in California, you view the concepts that are uniquely relevant for California customers, compared to the other 49 states.

To access Unique to This Filter:

  1. Open the Volume, Sentiment, or Drivers feature.

  2. Select your preferred filters in the Filter documents pane.

  3. Select Unique to this filter in the Configure volume visualization panel. The visualization updates to display concepts that are unique to your filter, relative to the rest of the project.


QuickLearn 2.0

In December, we’re releasing QuickLearn 2.0, the most significant update to Luminoso’s science to date. When it’s released, all new project updates or builds in Daylight will use QuickLearn 2.0. QuickLearn 2.0 provides enhanced conceptual matching for your projects.


Volume: Clarified feature configuration options

With this release, we removed the Select concepts to compare, Sort order, and Break down by field menus that appeared at the top of the Volume feature. This change declutters the feature view and creates more space for exploring data. It also offers the opportunity to more clearly indicate the effect each configuration has on your visualization.


Now, sort your concepts using the column headings. Use the options in the Configure volume visualization pane at the left of the page to show top concepts, saved concepts, or concepts unique to this filter. You can also choose how to count matching documents and whether to visualize concept overall or broken down volume overall.


API: Introduced legacy_term_format as an optional parameter for the Vectorize text endpoint

With this release, we added the optional parameter, legacy_term_format, into the API endpoint for vectorizing texts. The parameter still defaults to true, and returns the array format you’re used to, but now you can specify false and return modern object-style terms and fragments.


API: Introduced match_type as an optional parameter for the Get documents endpoint

With this release, we added an optional parameter, match_type, into the API endpoint for getting documents. Now, you can specify if you’re looking for exact or conceptual matches. If you don’t specify match_type, you receive both exact and conceptual matches by default.

Drivers, Trend Analysis: Additional sorting option

In the Drivers feature, you may have already noticed an Average score for each concept and an Overall average score for all of the concepts in your project. Now, you can sort by Absolute difference, which expresses the difference between an individual concept score and the overall average score for your project. By expressing this number as an absolute, you can see both positive and negative drivers sorted by their degree of difference.


To access the new sort option, open the Drivers feature, select the Concepts tab, and click Absolute difference to sort by highest or lowest absolute difference.


Drivers, Trend Analysis: Guidance for concept visibility


In this release, we added tips that guide you in seeing which concepts can display in the scatterplot. This change helps clarify the maximum of 15 concepts you can select for viewing.


Highlights and Drivers: Display same top 15 concepts

With this release, the top 15 concepts that appear in the What issues are affecting my score? card in the Highlights feature match the top 15 concepts that appear when you open the Drivers feature. This change increases consistency between Daylight’s features for a more seamless experience.


This change applies only to premium feature users. Want to request access? Please contact your Customer Success Manager.
