ABOUT LEARNING FACTORY

Backed by actual specialists in the matter and using real-world machine learning models, the game aims also at teaching how big data is collected and processed in machine learning. You will be learning about two of the most relevant technologies of our time while you play a super fun strategy game — if you want to, that is; because at its true heart it’s above all a quirkily engaging factory automation game with lots of cats in it!
