Abstract: Once used for simple encapsulation of cells or drugs, in homogenous materials, today's hydrogels are more complex smart polymers with different types of ligands and cross links allowing for highly regulated structures and different bioresponsive functionalities. This review will emphasize on the various aspects of the hydrogels. Hydrogels that undergo swelling changes in response to specific biomolecules have become increasingly important because of their potential applications in the development of biomaterials and drug delivery systems and the biomedical applications of the hydrogels. We concentrate on the bioresponsive hydrogels and sensors, also introduces the physical background of the special properties of stimuli-responsive hydrogels; use of the various transducers describing changes in physical properties of the hydrogels. This paper considers the possibility of using artificial neural network models to identify model for swelling behavior as new techniques
