The Golden Data Entertainment Award 2017-2018 gala, under the guidance of the Chinese Culture Institute of Internet Communication and China Newspaper Association and sponsored by AI-Man Data and the Film and TV Institutions and Companies Committee under the China Television Artist Association, was an effort to restore cultural market order and a healthy environment to the industry. 

In the current entertainment industry, there are plenty of paid posters and bots as well as fabricated data that support the popularity of some stars, TV series and films and lead to the creation of market bubbles. But the practice misleads the public's taste, results in low-quality work and damages a fair competition environment and commercial value, the organizers said.  

The gala handed out awards to hot shot stars such as Lu Han, Jackson Yee, actor Wu Xiubo, actress Ma Li, directors Feng Xiaogang, Wu Jing and screenplay writer Yan Geling, as well as film "Wolf Warrior 2." Several stars attended the gala to receive the awards and show their support for true showbiz big data. The awards are based on the real data produced by AI-Man Data using artificial intelligence plus big data mining technologies.

AI-Man Data, a cooperative partner of China's predominant institutions and enterprises such as China Film Group Corporation, Dalian Wanda Group, Huayi Brothers and China Central Television, was founded in 2012 and formerly known as Excellent Entertainment Data Information Co., Ltd. It has the most comprehensive and largest entertainment big data assets covering the entire internet and has built the first pan-entertainment big data platform in China.

Xia Zongliang, chairman of AI-Man Data, said the development of big data technologies is "pushing forward the regulation of the cultural industry" and taking the "water" out of bloated figures in order to provide accurate data about popularity. According to him, AI-Man Data worked with the State Key Laboratory of Intelligent Technology and Systems at Tsinghua University and many artificial intelligence experts to achieve this goal.
