The founder of the Babylon healthcare app for smartphones recently said of his product, "I think it is going to be 10 times more precise than a doctor."

Artificial intelligence medical advisers, as Babylon and similar apps are known, could also control spiraling healthcare costs.

A Financial Times writer recently interacted with the app to pinpoint the cause and treatment options for some stomach issues. Madhumita Murgia explains: "A single 10-minute trip to my local GP, with whom I would have had a similar exchange, would have cost the UK’s National Health Service £45. If I had asked to see a nurse, it would have cost the NHS £13. Instead, my five-minute consultation had cost Babylon — and the NHS — absolutely nothing. A day of following its advice, and my stomach ache resolved itself."
