ChatGPT, while cool, is just the beginning; enterprise uses for generative AI are far more sophisticated. Venture capital firms have invested over $1.7 billion in generative AI solutions over the last three years, with AI-enabled drug discovery and AI software coding receiving the most funding. “Early foundation models like ChatGPT focus on the ability of generative AI to augment creative work, but by 2025, we expect more than 30% — up from zero today — of new drugs and materials to be systematically discovered using generative AI techniques,” says Brian Burke, Research VP for Technology Innovation at Gartner. “And that is just one of numerous industry use cases.”
Generative AI can explore many possible designs of an object to find the right or most suitable match. It not only augments and accelerates design in many fields, it also has the potential to “invent” novel designs or objects that humans may have missed otherwise. Marketing and media are already feeling the impacts of generative AI. Gartner expects: By 2025, 30% of outbound marketing messages from large organizations will be synthetically generated, up from less than 2% in 2022. By 2030, a major blockbuster film will be released with 90% of the film generated by AI (from text to video), from 0% of such in 2022. Still, AI innovations are generally accelerating, creating numerous use cases for generative AI in various industries, including the following.
A 2010 study showed the average cost of taking a drug from discovery to market was about $1.8 billion, of which drug discovery costs represented about a third, and the discovery process took a whopping three to six years. Generative AI has already been used to design drugs for various uses within months, offering pharma significant opportunities to reduce both the costs and timeline of drug discovery.
Generative AI is impacting the automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, electronics and energy industries by composing entirely new materials targeting specific physical properties. The process, called inverse design, defines the required properties and discovers materials likely to have those properties rather than relying on serendipity to find a material that possesses them. The result is to find, for example, materials that are more conductive or greater magnetic attraction than those currently used in energy and transportation — or for use cases where materials need to be resistant to corrosion.
Generative AI is one way of creating synthetic data, which is a class of data that is generated rather than obtained from direct observations of the real world. This ensures the privacy of the original sources of the data that was used to train the model. For example, healthcare data can be artificially generated for research and analysis without revealing the identity of patients whose medical records were used to ensure privacy.
