Machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) are a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that can automatically learn from data and can perform tasks such as predictions and decisionmaking. Interdisciplinary studies combining ML/DL with chemical health and safety have demonstrated their unparalleled advantages in identifying trend and prediction assistance, which can greatly save manpower, material resources, and financial resources. In this Review, commonly used ML/DL tools and concepts as

More than 100 papers have been categorized and summarized to present the current development of ML/DL-based research in the area of chemical health and safety. In addition, the limitation of current studies and prospects of ML/DL-based study are also discussed. This Review can serve as useful guidance for researchers who are interested in implementing ML/DL into chemical health and safety research and for readers who try to learn more information about novel ML/DL techniques and applications.
