The general problem of Monte Carlo integration and event generation in physics is to produce a sample of points which are distributed over phase space according to some differential cross section. I will discuss a framework in which an artificial neural network can be trained to perform this task. This can be viewed as a generalization of standard MC techniques, such as the VEGAS algorithm. I will present the considerations that go into the architecture of the neural net, and show results obtained for a number of simple processes of relevance to particle physics.
