We propose a paradigm to deep-learn the ever-expanding databases which have emerged in mathematical physics and particle phenomenology, as diverse as the statistics of string vacua or combinatorial and algebraic geometry.

As concrete examples, we establish multi-layer neural networks as both classifiers and predictors and train them with a host of available data ranging from Calabi-Yau manifolds and vector bundles, to quiver representations for gauge theories. We find that even a relatively simple neural network can achieve astounding accuracy in a matter of minutes.

This paradigm should prove useful in various investigations in landscapes in physics as well as pure mathematics.
