Artificial Intelligence is a branch of engineering that specializes in developing intelligent machines. The utilization of artificial intelligence in pharmaceutical technology has elevated over the years. Over the beyond few years, the sector of artificial intelligence has moved from largely theoretical research to real-international applications. Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence that gives systems the capacity to automated learn and enhance from experience without being especially programmed. Machine learning (MI) ought to protect medicine around $100 billion yearly due to more efficiencies in clinical trials, higher insights for decision-making and innovative tools that could assist consumers, physicians, regulators and insurers to make informed decisions. Neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms are unexpectedly developing technologies that would be applied to the formulation and manufacturing of pharmaceutical products. The present article, in brief describes the significance of AI within the manner of drug development after which seems on the numerous AI tools that are available at the disposal of a present-day pharmacist to aid in more efficient functioning.

Key words: Artificial intelligence, Pharmaceutical technology, Drug development, Health care, Engineering.
