The topic of artificial intelligence (AI) is fascinating and expanding. Given the volume and growth of data, AI technologies are essential for conducting a thorough analysis of the information underlying the data. The use of AI in drug discovery and development is crucial to advancing research and improving decision-making across a wide range of professions and disciplines, including medicinal chemistry, upscaling, molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, formulation development, and toxicity. AI is crucial to improving clinical trial design (biomarkers, efficacy parameters, dose selection, trial duration), target patient population selection, patient stratification, and patient sample evaluation in order to increase success rates. The rise in start-up businesses focused on this area, the rise in pharma collaborations with AI platforms, and the abundance of articles and reviews describing current applications, their successes, and their drawbacks are all indicators of the growing importance of AI in drug discovery and development.

One of the fundamental goals of humans is to regulate these changes for our benefit. This is especially true in the fields of medicine and pharmaceuticals, which are continually undergoing change. These fields concentrate on the synthesis or discovery of chemical substances and mixtures, as well as their application to alleviate both physical and mental suffering. For many years, a regulatory framework has governed the production of pharmaceutical products, ensuring the quality of finished goods through testing of raw materials, in-process materials, end-product features, batch-based activities, and fixed process conditions [1]. The pharmaceutical industry is in critical need of mechanical innovation, easing the creation of medications for human use. Recent improvements in genomics and diagnostics have enabled new and creative pharmaceutical products and approaches. The current degree of advancement in medical plans and assembling of these items can't address the issues of customized medication. Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way clinical examination and training is carried out [2]. Doctors can participate in the development of AI for use in the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Big data provides a huge opportunity for more in-depth research as a result of data mining in this industry. Due to developments, expansion, and the adaptation of excess amounts of data available for producing useful insights, AI-enabled technology is actively being used to tackle minor yet significant concerned issues in the medication and development industries. As a result, the authors feel that it is necessary to compile a thorough article that examines how AI, machine learning, and big data have contributed to drug discovery and development. This article will cover the most recent developments, research advances, and novel studies made by researchers in this area as well as what the future will hold for the pharmaceutical industry when it successfully applies the latest AI developments to it [3, 4].

The experimental and computational fields of drug design and development will continue to be early adopters of new and developing technology. One of the difficulties is deciding whether to use these technologies to improve the pipeline and processes that already exist or if there is a better opportunity to reengineer the processes in light of these technologies. The need to investigate how computational and reasoning approaches might be applied to optimise the process both in terms of clinical importance and cost savings will be driven by big data, digital healthcare, remote monitoring, and genomics. In order for artificial intelligence methods to be successful, the right question and the appropriate technology must be matched [5].


AI's key potential in the pharmaceutical sector is to lower costs and boost productivity. Numerous studies have shown that dynamic learning may distinguish AI models with a high degree of accuracy while using half or less information than conventional AI and information subsampling techniques. It seems that less repetition and predisposition, as well as acquiring more significant knowledge to overcome decision restrictions is critical factors in this greater execution, even though the cause of this increased productivity is not entirely known. As a result, screening costs look to be lowered by up to 90% without accounting for the anticipated mechanical overhead for actually carrying out dynamic learning activities.
