Schwab, founder of the world economic forum, once said that since the invention of steam turbine, AC and computer, the “fourth industrial revolution” represented by the digital revolution is coming, and blockchain technology is the achievement of the “fourth industrial revolution”, leading financial technology from the application level of mobile Internet, big data and cloud computing to the innovation level of technology, Is a disruptive technology. AI is also one of the most remarkable achievements in science and technology in the past decade. Artificial intelligence takes the birth of alphago in 2016 as the watershed. Driven by deep learning, artificial intelligence has made rapid development at the application level, which is also understood by more and more ordinary people. AI has not only accelerated the intelligent upgrading of traditional industries, but also spawned new species and formats such as autonomous driving and robots.
So what kind of spark will it spark if blockchain + AI are combined. Recently, IDC, a consulting firm, and Jianan, a Chinese mining machinery and intelligent chip enterprise, released the first AI report in 2020 – scenario AI, making intelligence within reach, showing the picture of people’s beautiful life after the further implementation of AI, blockchain and Internet of things technologies in the future.
IDC pointed out that for the transformation and upgrading of existing business and life scenes, making the stock equipment realize the intelligent upgrading of blockchain + AI is the first step in the implementation. Business intelligence means that enterprises, driven by blockchain, AI and other technologies, improve the cooperation efficiency of operation and supply chain, improve the communication mode between enterprises and users, obtain more in-depth user data, and develop an innovative business pattern, such as smart Park, smart retail, smart medical and other fields. According to IDC estimates, AI expenditure in China’s retail industry will reach US $950 million in 2023, and CAGR will reach 45% in the next five years.
Life intelligence refers to AI and other technologies that solve the inconvenience in people’s daily life, bring innovation in the way people interact with objects, objects and objects (Internet of things), expand people’s ability to perceive the environment and predict risks, and make people’s life more convenient, comfortable and safe. For example, smart cities use AI + blockchain technology to intelligently plan real-time road conditions and traffic flows; In addition, smart home, smart payment and smart education all belong to this field.
IDC also cited the example of Jianan technology using blockchain + AI to realize life and business intelligence. Jianan has carried out the practice of intelligent water and electricity meters in Guiyang huaguoyuan community, and has carried out intelligent transformation of water and electricity meters for more than 300 various residential and office buildings in huaguoyuan community, the “largest community in Asia”. AI replaces manual meter reading, which improves the efficiency of daily meter reading and payment, and the block chain also makes the reading fair, transparent and reliable. The k210 chip of Jianan Canzhi can complete localized intelligent identification and reading recording of the dial photos taken by the image acquisition equipment, and can also assist the local hydropower companies in real-time forecasting the water and electricity consumption and improve the planning ability.
IDC pointed out in the report that data has become a new production factor juxtaposed with “labor, capital, land, knowledge, technology and management”. It is the cornerstone of blockchain, Internet of things, artificial intelligence and other fields in the future. Data will become a key indicator to measure the competitiveness of small enterprises, large cities and even countries. In the next decade, China is expected to occupy the first mover advantage in blockchain, cloud services, mobile payment, 5g and other fields. Chinese enterprises have a huge user base to provide data support. Chinese enterprises have formed a complete blockchain + artificial intelligence ecosystem. From chip enterprises such as Jianan and Cambrian, to algorithm enterprises such as iFLYTEK and Shangtang technology, and then to application service providers in various industries, China and the world finally stood on the same starting line in this fourth technological revolution.
