Since a decade, machine learning has started to revolutionize several fields due to the development of new algorithms and the availability of more data every day. Deep learning, a class of machine learning methods based on learning data representations, has demonstrated strong abilities at extracting high-level representations of complex processes. In this work, we will implement a particular class of machine learning architecture called Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to replace the finite element solver for 3D hyper-elastic simulations. Also, we will briefly touch upon the dropout technique and its possible use in predicting uncertainties of the neural network predictions.
