The isothermal gas sphere is a particular type of Lane-Emden equation and is used widely to model many problems in astrophysics like stars, star clusters, and the formation of galaxies. In this paper, we present a computational scheme to simulate the conformable fractional isothermal gas sphere using an artificial neural network (ANN) technique and compare the obtained results with the analytical solution deduced using the Taylor series. We performed our calculations, trained the ANN, and tested it using a wide range of the fractional parameter. Besides the Emden functions, we calculated the mass-radius relations and the density profiles of the fractional isothermal gas spheres. The results obtained provided that ANN could perfectly simulate the conformable fractional isothermal gas spheres.
