Accompanied by the great advances in computer hardware and the widespread commercial application in big data, the artificial intelligence (AI) represented by the machine learning technology has gained popular applications in the past two decades. On the other side, some challenges such as multiscale modeling, simulation, optimization, control, and supply chain management have been encountered in the research of process system engineering (PSE). Advanced AI technology like deep learning, reinforcement learning, etc. provides a promising way to solve the above-mentioned problems in the PSE from a different perspective. Therefore, the background about PSE and typical branching of AI are introduced to give us an overall grasp about both disciplines. In addition, some work related to the AI applications in PSE have been reviewed hopefully to provide some inspirations in the relative fields.
