We employ a deep learning method to deduce the \textit{bulk} spacetime from \textit{boundary} optical conductivity. We apply the neural ordinary differential equation technique, tailored for continuous functions such as the metric, to the typical class of holographic condensed matter models featuring broken translations: linear-axion models. We successfully extract the bulk metric from the boundary holographic optical conductivity. Furthermore, as an example for real material, we use experimental optical conductivity of UPd2Al3, a representative of heavy fermion metals in strongly correlated electron systems, and construct the corresponding bulk metric. To our knowledge, our work is the first illustration of deep learning bulk spacetime from \textit{boundary} holographic or experimental conductivity data.
