Machine Learning for Bond Options pricing/hedging

Hello everyone, 
I am working on my master thesis and I am studying the use of machine learning (mainly classical neural networks and variations, such as convolutional neural networks) to price and hedge bond options. I obviously found plenty of research on ML for pricing and hedging equity options, but so far I have been unlucky with fixed income. Does anyone know of any paper about machine learning for fixed income derivatives? 
Thank you in advance.

Why should bonds + hedge + ML be different from equities? Is ML not just doing the same as before but in a different way or are the use cases new?
e.g. take a convertible bond + all its use cases, it is a bit like an equity..

Lots of hype around ML.Make sure you define a well-scoped project.

My 2 cents.

You might get something useful from https://primedirection.net/docs/insight8.pdf
I’m puzzled why you would choose to model bond options, which are nearly non-existent in the real world, and almost certainly not instruments you can get any data for. Swaptions would make a lot more sense and be more relevant.

Does it have to be options? If not, how about Treasury bond futures?

Do you mean bond futures options nohedge?

Can you post what you found about the equities market please?

It's not actually clear what you are trying to do.
