[Objective] Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become a hot technology topic in the society. This paper aims to provide updated information of AI developments and advances to government, research community, industry and public. [Methods] This paper mainly reviews AI news and scientific publications in 2019 to summarize the overall technology progresses of AI. [Results] The AI community has become more rational and pragmatic relatively in 2019. On one hand, AI technologies are getting mature with more and more successful applications in the era of Internet of Things, Big Data, Super-computing, and Deep Learning. On the other hand, there are more and more promising and new directions in AI researches such as reinforcement learning, automatic machine learning, brain-machine interface, brain-like intelligence, and interpretable artificial intelligence. [Limitations] This paper mainly introduces the current development status of AI with limited efforts in prediction of future AI directions. [Conclusions] Great progress has been achieved in the areas of neuromorphic chips, brain-machine interface, human-computer game, intelligent robot, natural language understanding, and computer vision in 2019. But it is still a challenging task towards general AI. Technology breakthroughs are needed to achieve a new generation of AI.
