Generative AI: Revolutionizing Healthcare Through Creative and advance insights
We all know what generative AI is.
Generative AI is the potential of ChatGPT and open AI. The potential is enormous, for sure, but like any other technology, we need to identify how to leverage it and how to get started.
Generative AI plays a vital role in many areas and fields, mostly, I would say, in every field, because science and technology have no limits in growth and advancements.
Let me give you an example: in earlier times, there was no treatment for many diseases and disorders like cancer, Brain tumors, and many others that had no cure earlier, but in today’s time, we know and have also heard from our doctors and scientists that we now have treatment for these diseases. Not only our scientists working on treatment, but they are also working on a permanent remedy for these types of disorders and diseases.
When I say we have treatment for these types of diseases, I always go through many questions.
How is this treatment going on?
What kind of research are our medical experts and scientists doing in the same area?
What technology is our country using, and how is it actually impacting growth and advancement?
If science and technology are really growing, then what are the most recent and latest technologies we are actually using to get rid of these diseases and disorders?
How are our doctors actually giving another life to a physically handicapped person?
I will answer these questions in this blog, I would like to describe the importance of the latest techniques and technology, which play a vital role in the growth of our healthcare industry.
In recent years, the healthcare industry has witnessed a transformative and innovative wave of technological advancements, and one such breakthrough is the emergence and revolution of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Here are just some ways generative AI can be applied in healthcare and life sciences settings as well as how to get started.
Enhancing Medical Imaging:
Medical imaging plays a vital role in diagnosis and treatment planning of various diseases. Generative AI has the capability to generate synthetic medical images, such as X-rays, MRI scans, and CT scans. These generated images can supplement existing datasets, augment training data for machine learning models, and assist in the identification of complex patterns and abnormalities.
Accelerating Drug Discovery:
When we talk about drug discovery, it takes lots of time and hard work, as this involves lengthy research and intensive work. Drug discovery involves research work, optimizations of molecular structure, and simulation of chemical interactions.
By simulating chemical interactions, generative models can predict potential drug candidates, optimize their properties, and aid in the development of targeted therapies. This not only reduces costs and time but also opens new avenues for personalized medicine.
Example: We have no treatment for HIV/AIDS yet because the HIV virus enters the body and attacks the immune cells, resulting in the collapse of the immune system. But the difference here is that, in the event of the entry of the HIV virus into the blood, it makes its home there for life. It cannot then be eradicated from the body.
As per my research, I will show how AI can be used in the prevention of HIV/AIDS and how it can be used in the treatment of HIV.
- AI is the science of developing algorithms that use computers or machines to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Boosted by ML and including DL, AI has shown great promise for healthcare-related applications.
A timely review of existing efforts and discussion of future directions in the application of AI for HIV prevention interventions are urgently needed.
I reviewed applications of artificial intelligence (AI), including machine learning (ML), in the field of HIV prevention.
There are some recent findings that I summaries here, as mentioned below:
ML and AI approaches have been used to identify potential candidates for preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP).
PrEP stands for pre-exposure prophylaxis. The word “prophylaxis” means to prevent or control the spread of an infection or disease. PrEP is when people who do not have HIV but are at risk of getting HIV take HIV medicine every day to prevent HIV infection. in healthcare settings in the U.S. and Denmark, and in a population-based research setting in Eastern Africa.
Other applications include ML with smartphone-collected and social media data to promote real-time HIV risk reduction.
A virtual reality tool to promote HIV serostatus disclosure:
- VR technology can empower individuals living with HIV to disclose their serostatus in a safe, supportive, and immersive environment.
- VR technology offers a unique opportunity to create a virtual environment where individuals can disclose their HIV serostatus without fear of judgement or discrimination. Users can interact with anonymous avatars or virtual support groups, ensuring confidentiality while allowing for meaningful discussions about their health status.
This safe space promotes openness and reduces the psychological barriers associated with face-to-face disclosure.
Chatbots to deliver HIV prevention information:
- Chatbots have emerged as a powerful tool to engage with individuals and deliver timely information.
- By integrating with popular messaging apps or websites, chatbots are available 24/7, allowing users to access information at their convenience. Users can ask questions, receive accurate and up-to-date responses, and gain a better understanding of HIV prevention methods, testing options, and risk reduction strategies.
In a world where data is abundant and complex, Generative AI is actually emerging the creative force, unlocking insights that were previously hidden. Generative AI is an extraordinary technology that holds immense potential to revolutionize healthcare through its creative insights. From enhancing medical imaging to accelerating drug discovery this disruptive technology is reshaping the healthcare landscape.
