We propose a `learned' iterative solver for the Helmholtz equation, by combining traditional Krylov-based solvers with machine learning. The method is, in principle, able to circumvent the shortcomings of classical iterative solvers, and has clear advantages over purely data-driven approaches. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach under a 1.5-D assumption, when adequate a priori information about the velocity distribution is known.
