The “Embedded Infosphere” is composed of the “Internet of Things,” “Big Data,” the “Cloud”, and “Artificial Intelligence,” and represents all the new ubiquitous, smart, connected technologies and applications working as an integrated system. The EI has introduced a new stage (or Age) in the discourse on information policy, which goes beyond media, communications and the Internet, and is not currently being sufficiently addressed. In this emerging environment networking and intelligence are embedded into an increasing number of everyday things which constantly monitor and measure our lives. (Taylor, 2016) This paper presents a proposed evaluation index system for China of informatization under the background of Embedded Infosphere. It measures and analyzes the informatization level of China, reasonably predicts China's future informatization level index., finds ways and means to improve the level of national informatization, provides a theoretical basis for improving China’s construction of informatization, and puts forward constructive policy suggestions are of great significance to developing informatization.
