Machine learning algorithms provide a new perspective on the study of physical phenomena. In this paper, we explore the nature of quantum phase transitions using multi-color convolutional neural-network (CNN) in combination with quantum Monte Carlo simulations. We propose a method that compresses $d+1$ dimensional space-time configurations to a manageable size and then use them as the input for a CNN. We test our approach on two models and show that both continuous and discontinuous quantum…
