Because of one-child policy, China is in an aging society now. Most of Chinese familes are 4-2-1 structure. One child, parents, 4 grandparents. In this situation, Pension Insurance is a very important topic. To grant the insurance to old people, the information collection is a basic process. The government should collect correct information to make sure every old people can benefit from the insurance and the money is not wrongly distributed.
Normally this procedure is done by visit and find out the living conditions of old people. But in this way, the working efficiency will be very low. Furthermore, later years it is important to ensure whether the person is still alive. With the development of artificial intelligent, you may think about using fingerprint collection. Fingerprint can be used as a survival certificate, it can make sure that each old people can be correctly enrolled in this system and won’t make duplicated certificate, better than just visit.
However, fingerprint system has its limits. It still could not solve the problem of working efficiency. For old people, they are not convenient in moving. Hence, a long-distance system should be made to save this kind of situation.
Luckily, the only remote biometric technology whose name is voiceprint recognition can meet this requirement quite well. It is very convenient. They don’t need to go to a fixed station to do survival authentication with this new system. Instead, make a call is enough to enroll to pension insurance system. Additionally, the processing time is short and the working efficiency will be higher.
There are companies that already made this proposal. I hope it can be put into use as soon as possible.
