Artificial intelligence (AI) has strong logical reasoning abilities and the ability to learn on its own, and it can mimic the human brain's thought process. Machine learning and other AI technologies have the potential to greatly enhance the existing method of anticancer medicine development. However, AI currently has several limits. This study investigates the evolution of artificial intelligence technologies in anti-cancer therapeutic research, such as deep learning and machine learning. At the same time, we are optimistic about AI's future.
