Abstract Scope Thermodynamics is fundamental for understanding and synthesizing multi-component materials, while efficient and accurate prediction of it still remain urgent and challenging. As a demonstration of the "Divide and conquer" strategy decomposing a phase diagram into different learnable features, quantitative prediction of melting temperature of binary alloys is made by constructing the machine learning (ML) model "MeltNet" in the present work. The influences of model hyperparameters on the prediction accuracy is systematically studied, and the optimal hyperparameters are obtained by Bayesian optimization. A comprehensive error analysis is made on various aspects including training duration, chemistry and input features. It is found that except a few discrepancies mainly caused by less satisfactory treatment of metalloid/semimetal elements and large melting point difference with poor liquid mixing ability between constituent elements, MeltNet achieves overall success in prediction, especially capturing subtle composition-dependent features in the unseen chemical systems for the first time. The reliability, robustness and accuracy of MeltNet is further largely boosted by introducing the ensemble method with uncertainty quantification. Based on the state-of-the-art underlying techniques, MeltNet achieves a prediction mean average error (MAE) as low as about 120 K, at a minimal computational cost. We believe the present work has a general value for significant acceleration of predicting thermodynamics of complicated multi-component systems.
