We demonstrate a method to obtain the spectra of 1/f noises in spin-qubit devices from randomized benchmarking, assisted by supervised learning. The noise exponent, which indicates the correlation within the noise, is determined by training a double-layer neural network with the ratio between the randomized benchmarking results of pulse sequences that correct noise or not. After the training is completed, the neural network is able to predict the exponent within an absolute error of about 0.05, comparable with existing methods. The noise amplitude is then evaluated by training another neural network with the decaying fidelity of randomized benchmarking results from the uncorrected sequences. The relative error for the prediction of the noise amplitude is as low as 5% provided that the noise exponent is known. Our results suggest that the neural network is capable of predicting noise spectra from randomized benchmarking, which can be an alternative method to measure noise spectra in spin-qubit devices.
