Beyond ChatGPT – How AI is Redefining Your Industry, Profession, Company and Career – And What You Need To Do About It!
Al has been transforming entire industries for quite some time – and has now entered what I call ‘the era of acceleration.” That’s when multiple trends come together, coalesce, and speed up what was already fast. In that context, and given what is now unfolding with ChatGPT and image/video generation AI, you need to be thinking about the BIG future. That’s the new context of the Al Megatrends that have been unfolding in every industry for a time – but are now forever changing and accelerating in every industry.
While ChatGPT, Bing, and large-language models and image generation technologies like Stable Diffusion and Midjourney are getting all the attention – the fact is, there is a LOT more going on with AI.
With that in mind, I’ve long been keeping a careful eye on the evolution of AI in all the industries I speak in – it’s been used in various ways for quite some time. The big impact of what we are witnessing with ChatGPT and other technologies is related to the general acceleration of all things AI-related in every industry.
Which means that the megatrends are speeding up. Stay tuned to this page for an industry-by-industry overview of how things are evolving. The AI Megatrends theme will take a look at the long-term AI trends transforming our world and what it means.

AI IN HEALTHCARE, MEDICAL SCIENCE AND PHARMA
AI IN HEALTHCARE, MEDICAL SCIENCE AND PHARMA [ link ]
Here’s a fun fact about knowledge – prior to Covid, it’s estimated that the volume of medical knowledge was doubling every 6 to 8 years. It’s now estimated to be doubling every 78 days, if not faster! No one medical professional can keep up; all medical knowledge is almost instantly out of date, replaced by new insights, new forms of diagnoses, new methodologies, new forms of treatment, and new forms of measurement and analysis. Medical professionals are now increasingly reliant on their knowledge navigation skills – the ability to absorb that which is new is fundamental to success.
That is now changing even faster with AI in healthcare.

AI IN AGRICULTURE AND FARMING
AI IN AGRICULTURE AND FARMING [ link ]
Many people continue to view farming from the sepia-toned photos of the 1940s and 1950s. They don’t realize the technological and scientific advances or the massive opportunities for international growth. Growers that focus on innovation as a core value will find success; their innovation will focus on the triple-feature need for growth, efficiency, and ingestion of new science. It will be by adopting new methodologies, technologies, products, partnerships, and ideas that they will learn to thrive.
That’s what I’ve been stressing in the world of agriculture for many years, through dozens of keynotes to most major agricultural organizations. Organizations like Nutrien, FMC Agriculture, Simplot, Eli Lilly, Dupont, Purina, Land O’ Lakes, the United Soybean Board, and even the US Department of Agriculture have had me in. I guess the biggest compliment came when, after one agricultural keynote, one fellow asked me how long I had been a farmer.
With that in mind, I’ve long been keeping a careful eye on the evolution of AI in the agricultural industry – it’s been used in various ways for quite some time. The big impact of what we are witnessing with ChatGPT and other technologies is related to the general acceleration of all things AI-related in the industry.
As we add AI into the mix, suddenly, a fast-moving industry is moving into hyperdrive.

What’s the role and impact of AI in construction? What opportunities and challenges will it present?
To start to answer that question, you must consider the big, transformative trend that is driving forward the future of the industry overall – what I’ve come to call “Methodology Modification.” It doesn’t sound very exciting but is actually a massive trend, and it’s part of my BIG Future megatrends series.
And it’s all about methodology, insight, planning, and project management – and reinventing an industry at speed.
AI IN INSURANCE

The world of insurance is being transformed at a pace that defines new opportunities, presents new challenges, and turns the established order upside down.
It also challenges every assumption the industry has ever known.
The arrival of accelerated AI – already in prevalent use throughout the industry – will only accelerate trends that were already underway, but at a faster pace that is staggering.
AI IN MANUFACTURING

What’s the future of AI in the world of manufacturing? The simple answer – since it is already in widespread use, there is a lot more yet to come!
And in fact, it’s a priority for manufacturing CEOs, with the result that we are going from $6.7 billion in spending on AI to 2022 to $181.2 billion in less than a decade.
And it’s not about ChatGPT – its about process, vision, robots, virtualizaton and so much more!
Watch for posts on finance, retail, transportation, sports, education, energy, and more.
The acceleration of AI is not just about the technology. It’s about the promise and the peril, the opportunity, and the challenge, the disruptive impact and the strategy. It’s about leadership. Futurist Jim Carroll – one of the most respected leadership speakers in the world – with clients like NASA, Blackrock, Disney, The World Bank, and Pfizer – puts these realities into perspective for those organizations that require a highly customized, industry-specific overview to align to the future.
