We investigate modern machine learning techniques to derive calibration for the combined CMS electromagnetic and hadronic calorimeter system. We use the dataset from a 2006 CMS test beam to measure the calorimeter responses to pion beams of various energies. The performance of the network is evaluated by studying the linearity of calibrated responses. A convolutional neural network approach is used to train on a range of beam momenta from $2$ to $200\ GeV/c$ and to apply the correction to the energy distribution.
