Smart materials: Rational design in biosystems via artificial intelligence
Industry 4.0 encompasses a new industrial revolution in which advanced manufacturing systems are interconnected with information technologies. These sophisticated data-gathering technologies have led to a shift toward smarter manufacturing processes involving the use of smart materials (SMs). The properties of SMs make them highly attractive for numerous biomedical applications. The integration of artificial intelligence (AI) enables them to be effectively used in the design of novel biomedical platforms to overcome shortcomings in the current biotechnology industry. This review summarizes recent advances in AI-assisted SMs for different healthcare products. The current challenges and future perspectives of AI-supported smart biosystems are also discussed, particularly with the regard to their applications in drug design, biosensors, theranostics, and electronic skins.
