AI is quickly disrupting industries in ways we never imagined. From medicine to retail, AI tools like ChatGPT have the potential to radically change how industry leaders approach their businesses. 

In this post, LaunchPad Lab shares an overview of how AI could disrupt these top five industries: healthcare, retail, finance, manufacturing/supply chain, and legal services. Read on for a glimpse into the future of each industry and how we see AI shaping it.


AI has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by providing predictive insights that could help doctors diagnose and treat diseases much earlier than they do today. With access to a patient’s complete medical history and data from millions of other patients, AI-powered systems could detect subtle patterns that humans may miss.

In addition, AI could disrupt the healthcare industry by streamlining and automating internal processes and administrative tasks such as pre-authorizing insurance, following up on unpaid bills, and maintaining medical records.

When it comes to ChatGPT, there are potential opportunities to provide a conversational user experience to better understand a patient’s medical needs and connect them with the appropriate provider by matching a necessary type of care, area of specialty, accepted insurance, or services. Once ChatGPT is integrated into different areas of the web, it isn’t a far stretch to think that a quick conversation with the AI could lead to a simple way to find and confirm an appointment with a provider that fits all of your needs.

Retailers are already using AI to better understand consumer behavior and provide personalized shopping experiences. By using natural language processing (NLP) algorithms, retailers can interact more naturally with customers and provide relevant product recommendations. AI-powered analytics can also provide insight into customer preferences and behavior, helping retailers to better target their marketing efforts.

With ChatGPT, retail stores could provide an improved customer experience by using conversational AI to answer basic questions about products or services. For example, a customer could ask for help finding a specific item and an AI tool would guide them through questions to better understand what exactly they are looking for, their target cost, etc. Once this information is obtained, ChatGPT could provide potential options that fit within the specific criteria provided. To take this a step further, there is potential that from those options, AI could assist in ordering the item for the user with a single click.

Additionally, AI could be used to handle customer service inquiries quickly and accurately, freeing up valuable resources for other areas of the business. By leveraging conversational AI, retailers could provide a more efficient and personalized experience that keeps customers coming back time and time again.


AI is transforming the way financial services firms do business by automating processes and providing new insights into user behavior. Machine learning algorithms can process large amounts of data much faster than humans, helping firms to make better-informed decisions. Financial firms are also using AI-based chatbots and virtual assistants to provide personalized service to customers 24/7.

AI could also be leveraged to detect fraud or suspicious activity more quickly and accurately than human employees. With access to large amounts of data, AI can help analyze transactions in real-time and identify any potential risks or threats.

ChatGPT has the potential to revolutionize financial services by providing a more personalized and conversational experience for customers. For example, AI could be used to help users better understand their options when it comes to investing or managing their finances. By having an AI-powered conversation with ChatGPT, users would have access to tailored advice based on their specific financial needs and goals.

While the AI-powered chatbot in the example above is prompted to recommend a specific financial product type and then set up a call with a loan officer, there are several other flow options that this could have followed, including:

Manufacturing/Supply Chain

AI is helping manufacturers to optimize their operations and reduce costs. By using predictive analytics, manufacturers can anticipate customer demand and plan their supply chains accordingly.

AI also has the potential to revolutionize logistics and supply chain management. By using algorithms, AI can help plan shipment routes, optimize inventory levels, and monitor real-time trends to better predict customer demand. With ChatGPT, retail stores could process orders quickly and accurately while providing a personalized customer experience.

Legal Services

AI is making its way into the legal profession as well, with several firms already using it to streamline operations. AI-powered software can help lawyers quickly search large amounts of data and analyze contracts in much less time than it would take a human.

In the future, AI could be used to automate tasks such as document preparation and research. This would free up lawyers’ time so they can focus on more complex legal matters. ChatGPT has the potential to provide a similar experience for users seeking legal advice. By having a conversation with ChatGPT, users would be able to get answers to basic legal questions and get tailored advice or connected to the right professional based on their individual legal needs.
