About Us

We are a team passionate about driving change and improvements in industrial processes.


The Idea of FactoryMind was born in a meeting room in Oslo, back in 2018, after experiencing time after time how excellent AI projects in industry only ended up as a proof-of-concepts. The final implementation of the developed AI models into the actual industrial processes, in which the AI would generate actual real value, was missing. It was a no-brainer to us that this could be done in a better way, and what was missing was an AI platform catered to the specific needs of industry. Since then the concept has been implemented by a multi disciplinary collaborative team on behalf of an ambitious customer in the Biomass Process industry.


Intellectual Labs has refined the concept, added a fully connected IIoT platform, and offered it all in a “one-stop shop” AI & IoT SaaS platform.


In FactoryMind, we have created an AI Platform that makes it easier, faster and less risky to utilize Artificial Intelligence in  operations.
