Short summary
Learning physics from data using a deep neural network is a challenge that requires an appropriate but unknown network architecture. The package introduced here helps to design an architecture by translating known physical equations into a network, which the experimenter completes to capture unknown physical processes. A test bed is introduced to illustrate how this learning allows us to focus on truly unknown physical processes in the hope of making better use of data and digital resources.
