The fourth generation industrial revolution represented by intelligence, as a new economic form, provides a feasible path for achieving economic growth, optimizing the ecological environment and improving residents' income.  The conclusion shows that industrial intelligence promotes inclusive green growth on the whole, and after robustness test, endogeneity test, heterogeneity test and causal regression analysis, the result is still significant, which indicates that the benchmark regression results in this paper have strong robustness. Causal identification shows that the "Made in China 2025" policy has promoted the improvement of industrial intelligence to a certain extent, and the use of differential model research shows that industrial intelligence can promote the improvement of inclusive green growth, and a series of robustness tests are conducted to demonstrate that the conclusion is reasonable and reliable.
