SHANGHAI, January 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, Shanghai Leapstack Technology Co., Ltd. (hereafter referred to as Leapstack), an insurtech company, announced that it had raised a series C of 150 million yuan. This fundraising round was led by Legend Capital, followed by Peakview Capital, GF Qianhe Investment and Huazhi Capital, with Mountain View Capital acting as fundraising consultant.

In recent years, insurtech companies have embraced a more “automated” future with open arms amid the digital transformation of the insurance industry, especially health insurance. Cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence and big data are transforming all areas of the insurance value chain, including products, pricing, channels, operations, underwriting and claims settlement.

Among them, RPA (Robot Process Automation), which imitates and improves the way humans interact with software to perform repetitive, standardized and high-volume tasks, has become one of the powerful tools to accelerate the digital transformation of the insurance sector.

Founded in 2016, Leapstack is the explorer of “RPA + AI” in health insurance in China, offering services to regulators such as commercial insurance companies, medical insurance bureaus and audit departments with enterprise-level big data risk control solutions through the platform intelligent one-stop risk control powered by RPA+AI.

So far, Leapstack has established close partnerships with hundreds of companies, including China Life Insurance, PICC, China Taiping, CPIC, China Insurance, Ping An Insurance, Taikang Insurance, China Continent Insurance, Sunshine Insurance, AIA, AXA , CITIC Prudential Life Assurance, Sun Life Everbright Life Insurance, Generali China, Foresea Life Insurance, Hyundai Insurance, Hannover Re, China Merchants Bank, ICBC Technology, Merck Sharp & Dohme, BeiGene, CIIC, Jiang Tai Insurance Broker, Huatai Insurance Agency & Consultant Service, Shuidi Insurance, Easy Raising (Qingsongchou), Yidu Cloud, WeDoctor, Medbanks, Yuanxin Technology, Xiaomi Insurance and Shanghai Insurance Exchange.

Strengthening Intelligent Risk Control in Health Insurance with “RPA+AI”

As one of the digital transformation trends for enterprises, RPA has attracted increasing attention from global capitals in recent years. McKinsey revealed that the global RPA market is expected to reach 100 billion US dollars in 2025, with an annual rate of 64%, becoming one of the fastest growing technologies in AI-related fields.

In April this year, UiPath, a global RPA maker, listed on the New York Stock Exchange, marking one of the largest software IPOs in US history, with a market value of more 26 billion US dollars. UiPath’s successful IPO again attracted venture capital funds to invest in RPA in China. Business card statistics suggest that there were 13 fundraising events in China RPA sector this year, double that of 2020, with more than 1 billion yuan raised.

As for the insurance industry, despite broad prospects, national health insurance in particular, is plagued by low penetration, high operating costs, high compensation risks and a lack of standardized data formats for availability, which puts increasing pressure on the participants concerned.

On the one hand, national medical insurance payment pressure is increasing due to impacts such as the aging of the population and the increase in medical expenses, leading to medium and long-term sustainability risks. Therefore, the government has given top priority to reducing health insurance expenditure in the last round of medical reform. On the other hand, for fast-growing commercial health insurance, controlling expenses while expanding scale is key to improving product sustainability.

Consequently, controlling healthcare and commercial insurance expenses has become a matter of concern for all parts of the industry.

In such a context, Leapstack, by employing “RPA+AI”, has built several platforms such as smart health insurance claims management platform, smart survey, smart coverage audit government medical, the intelligent long-term care management platform, the anti big data -Money laundering platform, big data governance platform, etc. In addition to providing the entire claims process and risk control services for commercial insurance and reinsurance institutions and insurance brokerage firms, Leapstack can also provide intelligent risk control, fund management, smart audit, data governance, anti-money laundering and other services for health insurance departments, audit institutions and banks, and decision support for formulation and adjustment of relevant policies.

Take the example of health insurance claims. As traditional insurance claims require a wide range of time-consuming manual tasks such as reporting, information extraction, and adjustment, these insurance claims are often error-prone and inefficient. The automated claims adjustment engine provided by Leapstack follows insurance companies’ custom rules and supports automated determination of coverage and reimbursement amount, which shortens claims time, improves operational efficiency and reduces manual errors.

“At present, ‘RPA+AI’ technology has been applied to the entire health insurance claims process. Reinforced by ‘RPA+AI’, Leapstack has integrated every link of the claims process, including case reporting, information retrieval, adjustment, fee calculation, etc.” mentioned Jason Liu, the founder of Leapstack.

In addition, Leapstack has developed a machine learning model and medical knowledge map to meet underwriting, claims, customer service and investigation needs in different types of insurance such as medical treatment and serious diseases. These products allow efficient detection of risk points in the underwriting and claims process at the data level, as well as precise cost control of all the main insurance links. Its big data and artificial intelligence make it possible to reverse insurance pricing and accurately predict the risks of different combinations of liability clauses in insurance products, thus diversifying products and widening the scope of underwriting users.

As top notch professionalism has gained increasing capital, Leapstack is well positioned to establish a firm foothold in Asia Pacific

Since its creation, Leapstack has completed several fundraising rounds, with shareholders such as Gaorong Capital, Fomou Assets, DCM, Puhua Capital, Danhua Capital, Lingfeng Capital, FinVolution Group (NYSE: FINV), Uponest Capital, 360 DigiTech (NASDAQ: QFIN), Huazhi Capital and GF Qianhe Investment, etc.

As for the reasons for the growing capital Leapstack has received, Jason pointed out that the key is “completeness”. This includes not only technical prowess, team members, but also brand influence.

Start with technology.

RPA + AI technology is one of the advantages that Leapstack enjoys. Nonetheless, Jason argued that “while the technology is important, it’s not the most important. The key is to find appropriate scenarios where the technology can be applied, and then make improvements as the Despite nearly six years of growth, Leapstack has only focused on the preliminary application of the technical concept and framework of RPA+AI in some specific scenarios, and there is still plenty of room for growth to the future and time is needed for constant improvements.”

Second, the core Leapstack team. The founding team is drawn from top tech companies in Silicon Valley, with a core team of senior technical experts, insurance professionals, and physicians. The team has a wealth of experience in the fields of artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing technology and insurance risk control.

Regarding the future layout of the business, Jason said that Leapstack will continue to hold sway in the Asia Pacific insurance market while expanding its presence in the domestic market. In late 2018, Leapstack established Leapstack International Headquarters in hong kong, and joined Hong Kong Cyberport and InvestHK Project. From the hong kong market, Leapstack International has spent three years exploring the application of RPA+AI in the Asia Pacific insurance market. At present, stable partnerships have been established in hong kong, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand, and the risk control model and RPA+AI system have been successfully applied in local commercial insurance companies and medical insurance regulators.

“For Leapstack, our next step is to make an effort to expand the Asia Pacific market, especially in South East Asia and other countries where business has started to expand. Continuous efforts will be made to launch a world-class insurance platform enhanced by RPA+AI, a risk control model and better operational service capabilities,” Jason revealed.

An outstanding rookie season culminated with the appointment of Kansas City Chiefs rookie center Creed Humphrey to Pro Football Focus’s All-Pro squad. The honor comes after a rookie season where Humphrey has ranked among the best in his role, proving himself to be one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL.

During the regular season, Humphrey was only penalized four times for detention, with three of those penalties being denied or offset by defensive infractions. His tenacious blocking was enough for him to be ranked the best cross in the entire league, especially in the running game where he finished the year with the highest score of all in his position.

Other players named to the prestigious list included Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor and San Francisco 49ers left tackle Trent Williams. Humphrey’s selection to the All-Pro squad was the Chiefs’ only entry on the offensive end of the ball, and defensive tackle Chris Jones managed to squeeze into the second team on defense. Humphrey, however, was the only offensive rookie to win first-team All-Pro honors for PFF this season.

When Brett Veach called for the selection of the Oklahoma rookie last April, no one could expect the selection to pay off so early in their career. Although Humphrey was an accomplished lineman in college, he ended up being the third center selected in the 2021 draft after the Philadelphia Eagles took on London Dickerson with the 37th pick and the Green Bay Packers won. picked Josh Meyers a pick before the Chiefs.

All-Pro honors won’t mean much if Kansas City doesn’t do a deep run in the playoffs, but the addition of Humphrey to the NFL’s top talent list leaves no doubt that he is a legitimate talent at the professional level. To make such a list as a rookie is a truly impressive feat, and if PFF is to live up to its reputation as a top-tier analytics tool, it could mean that Humphrey will be a force inside the line. Chiefs offensive for years. to come.

The 2022 ICC Men’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup is set to begin on January 14 this year, with the West Indies hosting the tournament for the first time. No less than 16 teams will compete in the competition and India, a four-time record champion, will be among the favorites for the title. The ICC Under-19 Men’s World Cup kicked off in 1988 and has witnessed some remarkable moments, serving as a platform of choice for up-and-coming young people to stand out and taste the international action before heading into the tournament. senior cricket.

Ahead of the tournament, here’s a look at Group C:

Group C of the ICC Men’s Under-19 Cricket World Cup pits a two-time champion against one of the game’s rising forces, with a few potential black horses looking to surprise.

Pakistan are the only team to have defended the title, in 2006 after a first crown two years earlier, and will try to advance to the final for the sixth time in the West Indies.

Their biggest rivals in the squad could be Afghanistan, whose best result came four years ago when they reached the semi-finals.

Joining the sub-continental duo are Zimbabwe, who have achieved the first round three times, and Papua New Guinea, back in the competition after failing to qualify in 2020.

Afghanistan (7th appearance)

Afghanistan’s rise in the senior ranks has been mirrored at the Under-19 level, with the team reaching the quarter-finals in three of the last four editions of the ICC U19 Men’s CWC.

Since the first qualifying in 2010, Afghanistan has competed in every tournament since, culminating in 2018 when a team consisting of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Mujeeb Ur Rahman helped them reach the semi-finals before losing to the ‘Australia.

This time around, it will be spinner Noor Ahmad to provide the experience, as the sole survivor of Team 2020.

The 17-year-old has been involved in both the Big Bash and PSL and is expected to provide a lot of support to skipper Suliman Safi.

Pakistan (14th appearance)

Only India have reached the ICC Men’s U19 CWC final more often than Pakistan, which has reached it five times in total.

The glory years returned in 2004 and 2006, with back-to-back titles in teams such as future skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, as well as Wahab Riaz and Imad Wasim.

Most recently, Shaheen Shah Afridi first gained attention during the ICC Men’s U19 CWC, so the talent treadmill showed no signs of slowing down.

In the West Indies, the versatile Qasim Akram will be the captain of the team coached by Pakistani legend Ijaz Ahmed.

Qasim will be joined by top notch hitter Muhammad Shehzad, who is also returning for his second appearance in the tournament.

Papua New Guinea (9th appearance)

After the Papua New Guinea senior men’s team compete in the 2021 ICC T20 Men’s World Cup, the Under-19 team will make their ninth appearance in the ICC Men’s U19 CWC at the West Indies.

PNG are yet to make the first round of the tournament, but of their three previous wins, two have been against Group C opponents.

In 2010, PNG got the better of Afghanistan, while two years later it got the better of Zimbabwe.

The all-rounder Barnabas Maha will lead the team in the West Indies, having also been the team’s captain in the qualifiers for the CWC 2020 ICC U19 Men.

Zimbabwe (13th appearance)

Zimbabwe have been remarkably consistent in recent editions, finishing 10th or 11th in each of the last four ICC U19 men’s CWCs.

The best of those campaigns came in 2016 when a team consisting of then-15-year-old Wesley Madhevere lost by just two points to future champions West Indies and missed out on qualifying for the quarter-finals before beating the ‘South Africa through eight counters. in the play-offs.

A record of three wins and three losses in each of these tournaments shows that Zimbabwe should not be taken lightly by any opponent, and they will be eager to surprise the Sub-Continental pair who are the favorites to come out of the squad.

Emmanuel Bawa, who scored a century against Canada in the 2020 edition, is the team’s captain this year and is the only remaining member of that team.

Promoted

He will be supported by vice-captain Brian Bennett in a team coached by former Zimbabwean captain Prosper Utseya.

Jordan “Jelly” Walker was on a mission to give his team a two-possession lead late on the road and landed a clean shot on the rebound after a timely rebound from Quan Jackson after a failed free throw attempt.

He didn’t fall but Trey Jemison, imposing his massive frame, grabbed the offensive board on the miss and sent it straight back to Walker for a second chance.

Jelly.

Walker kept his promise, hitting the shot and three more free throws in the last minute to give the UAB basketball team a critical road victory over the defending conference tournament champion. .

The Blazers exploded out of the gates for a double-digit lead early on, but held on with calm determination in a 69-63 win over North Texas on Thursday, Jan.6, at the Super Pit in Denton.

“I thought the key to the game was for us to dominate them on the glass,” said UAB head coach Andy Kennedy. “Limiting them to just five offensive rebounds when we have 13 creates additional possessions in a game where possessions are a bounty depending on the style of play chosen.”

RELATED: Jordan “Jelly” Walker Fuels UAB’s Awesome Debut

UAB entered the game retaining its position in the top 50 of the KenPom (44) and NCAA NET (43) charts and improves to 13-3 overall and 3-0 in the league with its victory in Quad 1 – – UAB is 2- 1 in Quad 1 games this season, with both wins occurring on the road – against North Texas.

Mean Green’s four losses came by allowing their opponent to score more than 60 points.

The Blazers shot 47% overall, 50% at 3 points and 10 of 14 from the charity strip. Defensively, they allowed North Texas to shoot 48 percent from the field but dominated the battle on the glass with a +14 rebound advantage, including 13 offensive boards.

“At the end of the day, not only were we able to chain several saves, but we performed,” Kennedy said. “We handed the ball to the right guy in the right place.”

Walker finished tied with a high of 17 points, including three rebounds, three assists and two steals, and Trey Jemison was a force to be reckoned with in the paint, producing a high of 14 points and six rebounds.

Jemison grabbed a key offensive rebound that gave Walker a nudge to start a decisive 6-2 run with 2:11 remaining.

“Jelly made a few big plays and I think we did a good job finishing the basket to close the game,” said Kennedy.

KJ Buffen added 13 points and six rebounds and Quan Jackson ignored recent struggles to score 11 points, seven rebounds and two steals. Jackson was 2 for 2 on a 3 point range and only had one turnover.

UAB took a 17-6 lead in the first eight minutes of action, but allowed Mean Green to narrow the deficit to just one point on two first-half occasions. The two sides battled throughout the second half, producing five ties and four lead changes before the Blazers regained their advantage with a Tavon Lovan layup and a 3-point Mike Ertel.

Lovan finished with five points, two rebounds and four assists and Ertel made his only shot of the game with the go-ahead 3 points at 5:58 of the second half. Josh LeBlanc contributed six points and eight rebounds.

The Blazers wrap up their two-game Texas road trip against Rice on Saturday, Jan.8, at the Tudor Fieldhouse in Houston. Tipoff is scheduled for 3pm CT on Stadium.

Update:

EL PASO, Texas – Elina Arike flirted with a double-double (13 points, eight rebounds) while Teal Battle added 13 points – including late clutch free throws – and seven boards to help the Women’s basketball team of the ‘UTEP to claim a thrilling 56-55 victory over the Eternal Power of the Conference of the United States. Middle Tennessee will celebrate the New Years in style at the Don Haskins Center on Saturday afternoon.

It was a crazy competition with seven ties and 15 header changes, not to mention some big downhills on both sides. The Miners led nine (51-42) with 6:18 left in regulation before a 10-0 run for the Blue Raiders gave them a lead (52-51) with 3:20 to go. The two teams traded scores mostly on the charity strip over the next two minutes, and UTEP was up one (56-55) with 1:02 left after two clutch free throws from Battle. .

UTEP got a save and the rebound, but MT had a steal and called time-out to set up a game with 33.2 seconds left on rule. The Blue Raiders had two shots after an offensive board, but both were off target, including one on the buzzer, as the Miners hung on for the one-point triumph.

It was the Miners’ first win in the series since their run for the 2016 C-USA Championship and the second all-time against MT.

“[Great win] especially after a loss, a game we probably should have won. You never know how your young team will bounce back, ”said UTEP head coach Kevin Baker. “But when you beat a lasting power like Middle Tennessee, it says a lot about your team and the character of your team. It says a lot about what we were able to do today. [UTEP] fought and fought.

Katia Gallegos (eight points, seven rebounds, four assists), Avery Crouse (nine points, five boards) and Destiny Thurman (seven points) also chased him for the Miners, who held Middle Tennessee at 32.8%. of shots and 11 points below his seasonal scoring average.

After nearly three minutes of scoreless basketball, the Blue Raiders topped the standings with a triple. The miners scored the next four points in the competition to lead, 4-3, after a layup from Gallegos. MT responded with an 8-2 run to take a five (11-6) lead before the Orange and Blues put an end to things with a rotating layup in traffic from Brenda Fontana. The Bucket was the start of seven straight games for UTEP, including an old-fashioned 3-point game from Arike, to get him back in the lead (13-11) in 10 minutes of action.

The two teams traded points early in the second stanza, with five changes in the lead in the first three minutes of the period, with MT up two (22-20) with 7:16 remaining in the mid -time. Defense then took over on both sides of the field, with just 10 total points combined with the rest of the frame. Six of them were courtesy of UTEP, allowing them to lead by two (26-24) towards the locker room.

It was more back-and-forth action to start the third quarter with a few lead changes in the first 55 seconds.

Arike stopped the surge with a pair of free throws to start the final quarter, and UTEP closed the gap to nine, led by nine (51-42) with six and a half minutes to go. regulatory. MT retaliated with a vengeance with the aforementioned 10-0 run to retreat, but UTEP did enough on the charity strip and on the defensive end to win the game.

“When you are standing 11 [point], you know [Middle Tennessee] is coming back, ”said Baker. “That’s why I saved all my downtime because I knew it would be played out on the wire. Their program is too good and resilient. We were saving our timeouts and fueling up on what we knew, which was going to be a close final. But it’s one of the best defenses we’ve played all year. The kids worked really hard in training yesterday.

Crystal Palace sentenced Norwich to a fifth straight Premier League unscoring defeat, with winners 3-0.

Norwich started with good intentions at Selhurst Park but shot himself in the foot when Kenny McLean fouled Will Hughes inside the box after seven minutes, which allowed Odsonne Edouard to score on the spot.

From that moment on, Norwich passed out when Jean-Philippe Mateta pulled home a second clinic for the hosts 38 minutes before Jeffrey Schlupp followed suit four minutes later to take the score to 3-0 .

It was an impressive day at the office for Palace – which was without Conor Gallagher and Wilfried Zaha, as well as manager Patrick Vieira – as it was more misery for the Canaries as they went through December without scoring.

Crystal Palace won their last Premier League game in a calendar year for the first time since 1992, seeing them overtake Brighton in ninth place. As for Norwich, they will see the bottom of the 2021 table with a huge task to survive relegation.

How Crystal Palace sailed to victory

Norwich got off to a good start at Selhurst Park but got a boost when Crystal Palace got a penalty kick in under seven minutes. Hughes looked to create space for a shot, but a hanging leg from McLean sent the midfielder. Edward lined him up and sent him around the corner, sending Angus Gunn to jump in the other direction.

After a five-minute delay due to a malfunction in referee technology around half an hour, Crystal Palace added their second. It was a good break with the hosts, with Edouard fed on the left. His square pass found Mateta in the middle, who swept from close range.

The third from Crystal Palace was not far either. Hughes took possession of Norwich again, feeding Tyrick Mitchell on the left. His pass found Edouard in the middle, who had three yellow shirts coming closer as he left the ball for Schlupp on his left. It was also an impressive finish from the striker as he sent the ball past the goal and into the far corner.

Player Ratings

Crystal Palace: Guaita (7), Ward (7), Andersen (7), Guehi (7), Mitchell (7), Hughes (8), Kouyate (7), Schlupp (8), Ayew (7), Edouard (7), Mateta (7).

Submarines used: Benteke (6), Tomkins (6)

Norwich: Gunn (6), Byram (5), Gibson (5), Sorensen (6), Giannoulis (5), Lees-Melou (6), Gilmour (6), McLean (5), Tzolis (6), Idah (5 ), Placheta (6).

Submarines used: Rowe, (6), Sargent (6), Williams (6)

Man of the match: Jeffrey Schlupp

Norwich had their best halftime chances with five minutes of added time. Vicente Guaita failed to stop a superb cross from Sam Byram on the left, which reached Christos Tzolis just behind. He tried to get into an open net, but Joel Ward threw his body in front of the ball to block. Then Byram sent a header over the crossbar on Placheta’s free-kick as Crystal Palace’s three first-half goals went unanswered.

Much like the first half, Norwich got off to a better start, but both keepers were quickly called upon. Angus Gunn made a sensational double save just before the hour mark, first stopping Schlupp’s weak effort with his legs before a similar second save in quick succession to negate Mateta. At the other end, Guaita jumped up to stop Placheta’s volley that had landed nicely in his way.

Team news

  • Crystal Palace was without Conor Gallagher, who dropped out of the XI with James Tomkins and Wilfried Zaha suspended. Jack Butland also returned to the bench and was replaced by No.1 Vicente Guaita.
  • Marc Guehi also returned with his partner Joachim Andersen in central defense, with Jeffrey Schlupp and Jean-Philippe Mateta also on the side.
  • Norwich has made some big changes. Angus Gunn, Ben Gibson, Billy Gilmour, Kenny McLean and Przemyslaw Placheta retained their places, with six players entering the XI. Teemu Pukki and Max Aarons weren’t on the Norwich squad, missing a mix of injuries and illnesses, along with Todd Cantwell.

Crystal Palace believed they had scored a late fourth goal as substitute Christian Benteke returned home from close range after Norwich failed to clear a corner. However, he was flagged for offside and the goal was ruled out. VAR briefly verified the decision, but it was upheld.

However, the damage was done in the first half despite improvements for Norwich after the break as they finished the year at the bottom of the Premier League.

Man of the Match – Jeffrey Schlupp

One of the big questions when news of the team broke was how much Palace would miss Gallagher’s influence and goal threat. As it turned out, Schlupp adapted perfectly to Gallagher’s role at the forefront of the midfield, delivering an energetic performance full of quality and attacking intent.

He took his goal in the style of a very comfortable player in the opponents’ box – one of six shots he landed in 90 minutes of action. Special mention to Hughes too. His skillful pass through the heart of the Palace midfielder set the stage for a convincing victory.

Opta Statistics

  • Crystal Palace has lost only once and scored 18 goals in their 10 home Premier League games under Patrick Vieira (17 pts), having lost five and only scored nine times on the previous 10 (11 pts).
  • Norwich have scored just eight goals in their 19 Premier League games this season, the lowest total in a top-level season after 19 appearances alongside Leicester City in 1977-78.
  • Norwich have conceded six Premier League penalty goals this season, more than any other team.
  • Odsonne Edouard was directly involved in three goals for Crystal Palace against Norwich (1 goal, 2 assists), just one goal less than he managed in his previous 15 Premier League games combined (3 goals, 1 decisive pass).
