2019-07-03 16:38:34

At the two sessions (NPC, CPPCC) this year, the elements of artificial intelligence (AI) are once again refreshing. It is understood that the "World's first AI synthetic female anchor" launched by Xinhua News Agency officially took up the post in the two sessions. At the same time, this year's government work report also mentioned that it is necessary to deepen research and development applications such as big data and artificial intelligence.

“With the vigorous support of the national policy, the development of AI in China is encouraging, and AI enterprises are in the forefront of the international application fields of AI such as face recognition, speech recognition, security monitoring, intelligent speaker and intelligent home”, Chen Xiaohong, member of the 13th CPPCC National Committee, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and President of Hunan University of Commerce, told the Economic Network and the Journal of Economy Reporter.

However, the development of AI is still facing great bottlenecks and difficulties. Algorithms, computing power and data are the core of the underlying architecture of AI development. Algorithms have made breakthroughs, but still encounter tremendous challenges at the level of computing power and data. The most typical is that the expensive computing resources, data monopoly and data privacy can not be protected, making artificial intelligence often become oligarchy games, seriously restricting the development of artificial intelligence. Therefore, it is necessary to solve the problem of data privacy, realize data right confirmation, and form a data trading platform based on block chain, so as to promote the rapid development of artificial intelligence.

Chen Xiaohong believes that the decentralized cloud computing formed by the combination of artificial intelligence and blockchain will become the next generation IT infrastructure. As the blockchain and artificial intelligence technologies move in parallel, it is necessary to pay close attention to the significant opportunities for the integration of the two. On the one hand, blockchain technology provides effective intelligence aggregation support for artificial intelligence, and realizes the sharing of computing power by calling global idle computing power, thereby greatly reducing the computational cost; On the other hand, blockchain technology provides sufficient data support for artificial intelligence, and realizes the separation of data usage rights and ownership through smart contract technology, and cannot be tampered with, and freely circulates data under the premise of protecting data privacy, greatly reducing data acquisition cost. Therefore, building a distributed artificial intelligence cloud platform by means of blockchain technology not only reduces the cost of artificial intelligence computing, at the same time it solves the problem of data monopoly and data privacy protection also, helping artificial intelligence enterprises to lower the threshold of entrepreneurship and promote the development of artificial intelligence.

China has carried out forward-looking layout in the field of the integration of blockchain technology and artificial intelligence, and supported relevant institutions to tackle key and core technologies, which will greatly improve the pace of the integration of artificial intelligence and industry in China. Strategically, it is of great significance for China to seize the commanding heights of global competition and break through the key technologies of artificial intelligence in the future. Chen Xiaohong suggested that the strategy should be laid out in advance and a special strategic plan for the integration of artificial intelligence and block chain technology should be formulated. To speed up the research on the theoretical basis and cutting-edge technologies of the integration of artificial intelligence and block chain; Building a force sharing platform of artificial intelligence based on block chain technology; Focus on the advantages to build an experimental area for the integration of artificial intelligence and block chain development; The establishment of artificial intelligence and block chain technology platform for production, study and research; We have carried out extensive exchanges and cooperation with countries around the world in terms of technology exchange, data sharing and application platform construction.
