This poster presents recent advances in dolfin-adjoint, the algorithmic differentiation tool for the finite element framework FEniCS. We will show dolfin-adjoint can be used to differentiated and optimised PDE models in FEniCS that are coupled to neural network models implemented in pyTorch. Our approach allows to compute derivatives with respect to weights in the neural network, and as PDE coefficients such as initial condition, boundary conditions and even the mesh shape.
