So i was looking at the csv and thought "kek tf does this mean" but then i checked the range values for the csv and saw they were rly similar. i looked at the hint about tony stark and thought maybe i need to build an ai or some shit. woa kept telling me i was mental and had big confusion but i continued anyway. i built one (code below) and ran it (followed tutorial with adjustments for massive training data). the output it gave was in binary (like in training data). i converted to text and gave flag{mlWis_cool} but it looked like some bits were flipped so i changed it to flag{ml_is_cool} which is flag.


hlp = open("help.csv","r").read().split("\n")
hlp = [[int(y) for y in x.split(",")] for x in hlp]

flg = open("flag.csv","r").read().split("\n")
flg = [[int(y) for y in x.split(",")] for x in flg]
