[Objective] Integrating blockchain and the next-generation artificial intelligence (AI), and solving key issues and challenges in blockchain with the learning, reasoning and decision-making capabilities in AI, has become an important breakthrough point for the development of blockchain. [Methods] In this paper, we aim at studying the novel paradigm of blockchain + AI, integrating and enhancing both areas via embedding the centralized AI algorithms into the decentralized blockchain systems. [Results] We propose the concept and method framework for the novel blockchain-enabled intelligent-ware, which offers potential solutions to joint optimization for performance, decentralized governance and security issues of blockchain, and also provides a new paradigm for the decentralized AI. [Conclusions] Intelligent-ware can help construct the next-generation blockchain systems with high performance, high controllability, high security and intelligent decision-making ability, thus generating the blockchain intelligence.

Key words: intelligent-ware, blockchain, smart contract, distributed artificial intelligence
