In this paper, we develop a multivariate regression model and a neural network model to predict the Reynolds number (Re) and Nusselt number in turbulent thermal convection. We compare their predictions with those of earlier models of convection: Grossmann-Lohse [Phys. Rev. Lett. 86, 3316 (2001)], revised Grossmann-Lohse [Phys. Fluids 33, 015113 (2021)], and Pandey-Verma [Phys. Rev. E 94, 053106 (2016)] models. We observe that although the predictions of all the models are quite close to each other, the machine-learning models developed in this work provide the best match with the experimental and numerical results.
