The result of search for non-resonant di-Higgs production in the $bbbb$ final state using full Run-2 dataset of proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}$=13 TeV with the ATLAS detector is presented. The $bbbb$ final state is one of the most sensitive channels for measuring the Higgs self-coupling and di-Higgs production cross-section, thanks to the highest branching ratio. The analysis utilizes a novel neural network to estimate the large QCD backgrounds, and employs analysis categorizations to improve the sensitivity to di-Higgs production. This poster will present the analysis strategy and the latest result of the observed (expected) upper limits on the SM HH production cross-section and the constraint on the Higgs self-coupling at a 95% confidence in this analysis.
