2020-7-23 13:12

 

HANGZHOU, July 23 (Xinhua) -- Chinese mobile payment giant Alipay's insurance platform has open-sourced noseprint recognition technology to use it on the company's newly launched pet insurance, according to Alipay.

The insurance, jointly launched with China Continent Property & Casualty Insurance Co., Ltd. and ZhongAn Online P&C Insurance Co., Ltd., is currently available for dogs and cats aged three months to 10 years old.

Pet's noseprints are similar to human fingerprints in that they are unique.

With the technology, Alipay's insurance platform can create an exclusive electronic file for each pet based on its noseprint and use the information to verify a pet's identity before completing a claim.

According to Alipay, the success rate of pet noseprint recognition technology exceeds 99 percent and is expected to be applied to urban pet management and lost pets in the future.

According to a white paper on China's pet business published by Chinese pet industry website goumin.com, urban consumption in the pet market in China reached 202.4 billion yuan (about 29 billion U.S. dollars) in 2019.

 

新华网杭州7月23日电据支付宝透露,中国移动支付巨头支付宝旗下的保险平台已经将开源的鼻印识别技术用于公司新推出的宠物保险。


该保险由中国大陆财产保险股份有限公司和众安在线财产保险股份有限公司联合推出,目前适用于3个月至10岁的猫狗。


宠物的鼻印与人类的指纹相似,因为它们是独一无二的。


有了这项技术,支付宝的保险平台可以根据每只宠物的鼻印为其创建专属电子文件,并在完成索赔前使用这些信息来验证宠物的身份。


支付宝表示,宠物鼻印识别技术的成功率超过99%,有望在未来应用于城市宠物管理和走失宠物。


据中国宠物行业网站“狗民网”发布的《中国宠物业白皮书》显示,2019年中国城市宠物市场消费达到2024亿元人民币(约290亿美元)。
