Abstract: Machine learning has the potential of becoming, among other things, a major computational tools in physics, making possible what was not. Specifically, I will summarise my recent work which aims to use a continuous flow model to help ameliorate the numerical difficulties in sampling in lattice field theories, which for instance hampers high-precision computations in LQCD. I will focus on the case study of the phi^4 theory in 2 dimensions. The talk will be based on 2110.02673 and 2207.00283 with de Haan, Gerdes, Rainone, and Bondesan.
