AI Verification Using Insure Tech

“AI verification has solved the problem of real-body verification and it provides technology support for the development of the insurance industry in the internet era.”

In the insurance industry, it is difficult to verify the identity and behavior of a certain person in various business affairs. In September 2017, after years of deep development and research, AI verification, an online identity verification product, was launched. It has offered certification service for over 100 million people with 25 percent market share in China’s insurance industry. Furthermore, the app usage rate has reached 16 percent among customers, the database has been called 700 million times between January and June 2018, and the app itself has been designed and modified for over 100 set up modes. As a result, 50 partnerships have been built for further cooperation.

The Problem

In the three main scenarios of the insurance industry (insuring, preservation, claim settlement), there is huge demand for online verification during the expansion of web-based business. If the problem remains unsolved, the expansion of the insurance business on the internet will be obstructed.

The Solution

We offer a multidimensional comprehensive solution involving several AI technologies—big data, biological recognition, image contrast, OCR, video detection, NLP—into each kind of scenario, applying multiple combinations into online verification in order to supply technology support for the development of the insurance industry in the internet era.

The Outcome
