The conventional numerical solvers for partial differential equations encounter a formidable challenge, as their computational efficiency and accuracy are heavily contingent on grid size. Recently, machine learning (ML) has exhibited substantial promise in addressing partial differential equations. Nevertheless, substantial hurdles persist in practical applications. In this work, we endeavor to establish a deep learning framework founded on the Fourier neural operator (FNO) for resolving the intricacies of simulating real landslide dynamic processes. Our findings demonstrate that the current FNO approach adeptly replicates landslide dynamic processes and boasts exceptional computational efficiency. Additionally, it is noteworthy that this data‐driven ML methodology can seamlessly incorporate data from other experimental sources or numerical simulation techniques. Consequently, this work underscores the significant potential of utilizing ML methodologies to supplant conventional numerical simulation methods.
