This work focuses on the prediction of hot deformation behavior of thermo-mechanically processed precipitation hardenable aluminum alloy AA7075. Data available are focusing on a novel hot forming process at different tool temperatures ranging from 24°C to 350°C to set different cooling rates after solution-heat-treatment. Isothermal uniaxial tensile tests in the temperature range from 200°C to 400°C and at strain rates ranging from 0.001 s^-1 to 0.1 s^-1 were carried out on four different material conditions. The present paper mainly focuses on a comparative study of modeling techniques based on Machine Learning (ML) and the well-known Zerilli-Armstrong model (Z-A) as an empirically based reference. Work focused on predicting single data points of curves that the model was trained on. Due to the novel way data were split with respect to training and testing data, it becomes possible to predict entire stress-strain curves which leads to a reduction in the number of required laboratory experiments, finally saving costs and time in future experiments. While all investigated ML methods showed a higher performance than the Z-A model, the extreme Gradient Boosting model (XGB) showed the superior results, i.e., highest error reduction of 91% with respect to the Mean Squared Error.
