The greatest benefit of genAI in 2024 and beyond will be a growing understanding of all three areas. This matters to healthcare regulators who are looking to understand and deploy new technologies. It matters to researchers and doctors who are looking to better understand patients and how to deliver better treatments. And, it matters to healthcare companies and the millions of patients who are looking for ways to have more equitable and effective care.

For example, in healthcare AI-powered systems can assist doctors in diagnosing diseases by analysing vast amounts of medical data, including patient records, medical images and research papers. This collaboration between human expertise and AI algorithms leads to more accurate diagnoses, personalised treatment plans and improved patient outcomes.

AI is also revolutionising the way organisations analyse data. In the world of, AI algorithms can process massive volumes of financial data by identifying spending patterns, detecting anomalies and generating insights in real-time. This level of analysis was previously unattainable using traditional methods.

AI-powered spend analyticsenables organisations to make better data-driven decisions, optimiseprocurement processes, identify cost-saving opportunities, and enhancefinancial performance in ways that haven't been possible before.
