Abstract: In this talk we will discuss the application of Machine Learning techniques to obtain numerical approximations to various metrics of SU(3) structure on Calabi-Yau manifolds. More precisely, we will be interested in SU(3) structures whose torsion classes make them suitable backgrounds for various string compactifications. A variety of aspects of this topic will be covered. These will include learning moduli dependent Ricci-Flat metrics on Calabi-Yau threefolds and obtaining numerical approximations to torsional SU(3) structures.
