At present, one of the most advanced and popular high-tech is articial intelligence (AI)
technology, which was born in the 1950s. After decadesof development, this technology has
now developed into an intelligent robot that can be built beyond human beings, which is
different from the original simple mode of thinking judgment robot (Park and Han, 2018).
Now AI technology has begun to study the subjectiveconsciousness of the human brain, the
formation of the subjective consciousness of the human brain,and the causes and methods
This research was supported by Chinese National fund of Social Science: Research on Improving the
