All humans are 99% genetically identical. Yet the 1% difference hidden within our genomes is sufficient to also make each of us unique. No one is exactly alike, which means that when you are experiencing health issues, a solution that worked for someone else, might not work for you.
The recent advancements in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyse large data sets are changing the methods of research and personalisation of medicine. With whole-genome sequencing and the digitisation of patient records, large data sets have become available and AI applications can quickly and easily examine, organise and reference a patient’s unique molecular and physiological profile. Through AI analytical tools and machine learning models, we will be able to more accurately diagnose diseases and create the perfect prescription personalised to a patient’s genetic makeup.
