We present a new regression model for the determination of parton distribution functions (PDF) using techniques inspired from deep learning projects. In the context of the NNPDF methodology, we implement a new efficient computing framework based on graph generated models for PDF parametrization and gradient descent optimization. The best model configuration is derived from a robust cross-validation mechanism through a hyperparametrization tune procedure. We show that results provided by this new framework outperforms the current state-of-the-art PDF fitting methodology in terms of best model selection and computational resources usage.
