HONG KONG, July 12, 2018 – On July 12, Ping An SMART Tech Talk, organized by Ping An Technology, started in Hong Kong. The conference discussed the innovation and development brought by artificial intelligence to the fields such as finance, healthcare and smart city. As a sub-brand industry communication conference of Ping An SMART Conference, SMART Tech Talk aims to establish a link for technological innovation and commercial exploration at home and abroad.
Jessica Tan, deputy CEO, COO and CIO of Ping An Group, Ericson Chan, CEO of Ping An Technology, Hanna Qiu, Executive VP and Chief Innovation Officer of OneConnect, Ricky Ou, Chief Product Officer of Ping An Technology, Wayne Hu, Deputy GM of Ping An Smart City, Geoff Kau, Director of Smart Healthcare Center of Ping An Technology, Xie Guotong, Chief Healthcare Scientist of Ping An Technology, related government agencies of Hong Kong, representatives of AXA Lab Asia, Boston Consulting Group, Standard Chartered Bank, Ernst & Young attended the conference, and delivered speeches on topics concerning fintech, healthtech, smart city and cloud computing. The conference also includes two round-table forums in which participants exchanged views on the development trends of finance and healthcare, and their impact on Hong Kong. Ericson Chan presided over the whole conference.
In her speech, Jessica Tan introduced that Ping An had grown from a local company with only 13 employees to a financial conglomerate with more than 1.8 million employees. Today, in its thirties, Ping An must take technology as the driving force, focus on “finance+technology” dual drive development, draw a new blueprint for development, and follow a new “finance+ecosystem” development pattern in the next decade. Ping An’s development is attributable to China’s reform and opening up and Shenzhen’s communication and flexible use for reference with its neighbor Hong Kong in economic activities and policies. SMART Tech Talk can further deepen and expand the communication between the two cities. Jessica Tan hopes that such technological communication and industry discussion can continued in the era of smart tech, and promote the technological progress of the two cities and even the whole world.
The representative of Hong Kong government commented that, with the explosive development of smart technology, innovations have mushroomed everywhere. The trend is particularly evident in Hong Kong due to its status as an international financial center. How to seize the current smart tech trend to develop industries is of paramount importance to Hong Kong. It’s highly expected that the communication with Ping An can bring new ideas and new cooperation to Hong Kong’s industrial innovation.
Ericson Chan said, Ping An has evolved and transformed itself over the years, and is now focused on a “finance+technology” strategy, building ecosystems around Finance, Health, Auto, Property and Smart Cities.
During the conference, Ping An also showcased the latest smart tech products, including micro-expression recognition technology, smart fast claim technology, voiceprint recognition technology, Ping An smart healthcare imaging quality control platform and Ping An healthcare assistant. These smart products have been widely applied to financial lending, car insurance claim settlement, enterprise risk control, assistive disease diagnosis and treatment, and other scenarios, embodying Ping An’s efforts in the field of science and technology in recent years. As the organizer of the conference, Ping An Technology is one of the major players in the R&D of these smart products. In the exploration of smart tech, Ping An Technology has formed four core innovative technologies, covering cutting-edge technical fields including AI, intelligent cognition, blockchain and cloud. In recent years, Ping An Technology has been actively exploring platform-oriented operation. Through extensive cooperation with government agencies, public institutions and enterprises, research institutions and colleges, these advanced technological results have been transformed into solutions covering more than 400 business scenarios. Together, Ping An and Ping An Technology are striving to satisfy people’s needs in clothing, food, house, transport, birth, aged care, disease and healthcare.
It is worth noting that this is not the first time Ping An Technology has organized a technology event. In last December, Ping An Technology was the leading organizer of Ping An Group’s first SMART Conference, attracting more than 3000 attendees. SMART Tech Talk as a sub-brand has inherited the “technological spirit” of SMART Conference, but focuses more on high-level communication and building bonds in the form. In the next step, with the progress of branded tech events, SMART will undoubtedly become a prominent label of Ping An’s technical strength, and will push Ping Antowards a new development pattern.
