Blockchain Technology is considered to be the next generation of core disruptive technologies, following the steam engines, electricity and the internet. Steam engines unleashed the power of human productivity, electricity improved basic human living standard, the internet completely changed the way of information transmission, and now blockchain can be used as a mechanism to build trust. And this technology may change the Value Delivery System of the entire human society. The three major characteristics of machine trust, value delivery method, and smart contracts enable the blockchain technology to perfectly link the trust contract issue between the physical and virtual world.
As per technology of future technological trends, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a new technological science that studies and develops simulation and expansion of intelligent theories, methods, techniques and application systems of the human beings. It can be seen as the great technology that accelerates the process of the world and change the future of mankind.
However, acquiring data efficiently has become the bottleneck in the development of artificial intelligence industry. This problem determines the speed of iteration of Artificial Intelligence products. It is especially difficult to obtain valid and effective data for a model.
