Nanomedicine is evolving with novel drug formulations devised for multifunctional approaches towards diagnostics ad therapeutics. Nanomedicine-based drug therapy is normally explored at a fixed dose. The drug action is time-dependent, dose-dependent and patient-specific. To overcome challenges of nanomedicine testing, artificial intelligence (AI) serves as a helping tool for optimizing the drug and dose parameters. Real time conversions between these two features enables upgradation of patient data acquisition and improved design of nanomaterials. In this scenario, AI-based pattern analysis and algorithms models can greatly improve accuracy of diagnostics and therapeutics.
