This work deals with the modeling of homogenized few-group cross sections by Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). A comprehensive sensitivity study on data normalization, network architectures and training hyper-parameters specifically for Deep and Shallow Feed Forward ANN is presented. The optimal models in terms of reduction in the library size and training time are compared to multi-linear interpolation on a Cartesian grid. The use case is provided by the OECD-NEA Burn-up Credit Criticality Benchmark . The Pytorch  machine learning framework is used.
Key words: Homogenized Cross Sections / Machine Learning / Artificial Neural Networks / Supervised Learning
