4. Abstract: In recent years, an upsurge in AI has swept academia and business.Many countries have launched AI strategic plans, regarding it as the next generation of technology after the Internet to upturn people's lives and business models, particularly with image recognition and automatic driving as typical application scenarios. In the past few years, startups in artificial intelligence are popping up. Capital markets are particularly keen on AI: it has gone through a process of cognitive iteration, from high valuation and high investment cases to recent more rational thinking, all of which has had a significant impact on the commercialization of AI. Data has proven to be the key for AI to generate business value and change our lives. It must be scenario-based and meet the user's needs, regardless if it already exists or is generated anew. We can expected the development of AI to be increasingly rational, with its value gradually gaining fair recognition.
