Abstract: This paper analyzes the theoretical characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) by applying artificial intelligence “data feeding” to it. It is believed that the essence of the theorization of TCM is to construct the database of general “clinical information” based on the human brain as the material base and with materialist dialectics as the guiding principle to realize the digital decision-making process of “data feeding” in TCM. The conclusions are follows. Improvement in the volume and quality of the “data pool” is the most important motive force for TCM theorization. On the other hand, the decline of the “data pool” will lead to the stagnation of TCM development, and the present development of TCM should focus on the clinical practice of treating diseases. In addition, further development in the field of artificial intelligence is expected to deepen our understanding of TCM by providing a new historical context.

Key words: data feeding, to treat a disease, artificial intelligence, theorization, TCM
