Finding the optimal parameterization for fitting a given sequence of data points with a parametric curve is a challenging problem that is equivalent to solving a highly non-linear system of equations. In this work, we propose the use of a residual neural network to approximate the function that assigns to a sequence of data points a suitable parameterization for fitting a polynomial curve of a fixed degree. Our model takes as an input a small fixed number of data points and the generalization to arbitrary data sequences is obtained by performing multiple evaluations. We show that the approach compares favorably to classical methods in a number of numerical experiments that include the parameterization of polynomial as well as non-polynomial data.
