This talk will be based on arxiv: 2304.07247. We provide a novel Neural Network architecture that can: i) output the R-matrix for a given quantum integrable spin chain, ii) search for an integrable Hamiltonian and the corresponding R-matrix under assumptions of certain symmetries or other restrictions, iii) explore the space of Hamiltonians around already learned models and reconstruct the family of integrable spin chains to which they belong. The neural network training is done by minimising loss functions encoding the Yang-Baxter equation, regularity and other model-specific restrictions such as hermiticity. Holomorphy is implemented via the choice of activation functions. We demonstrate the work of our Neural Network on the two-dimensional spin chains of difference form. In particular, we reconstruct the R-matrices for all 14 classes. We also demonstrate its utility as an Explorer, scanning a certain subspace of Hamiltonians and identifying integrable classes after clusterisation. The last strategy can be used in future to carve out the map of integrable spin chains in higher dimensions and in more general settings where no analytical methods are available.
