Can you show us where you have seen the term used?

Usually 'advanced' refers to modern materials that are highly engineered in terms of composition (highly optimized and controlled) and processing.

ASM International publishes a journal "Advanced Materials and Processes". The journal highlights developments in modern materials science and engineering.

I usually think of advanced materials as composites.

I think advance materials refer to materials which are highly engineered for specific application. Example are smart materials, carbon nanotubes and etc.

advanced materials refers to the materials which are used in special applications for example CoCr alloys, Stainless steels and Ti alloys are used as biomaterials, superalloys, high temperature alloys, shape memory alloys etc

Advanced materials are the high tech ''cool'' material that you constantly hear about. Biomaterials (have to be compatible with the human body, not toxic, used for prosthesis, pacemakers and so on), semiconductors, smart materials (ex. the ones that revert to their original shape when there is a change intemperature or piezoelectric ones or magnetorheological ones -> the ones that change viscosity when a magnetic field is applied on the fluid).

I'd say that under advanced materials you also have nanomaterials where the basic building blocks, the structure is on the nano level and thus the material as a whole exhibits different macroscopic properties.
