Practical Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain

By: Ganesh Prasad Kumble

Overview of this book

AI and blockchain are two emerging technologies catalyzing the pace of enterprise innovation. With this book, you’ll understand both technologies and converge them to solve real-world challenges. This AI blockchain book is divided into three sections. The first section covers the fundamentals of blockchain, AI, and affiliated technologies, where you’ll learn to differentiate between the various implementations of blockchains and AI with the help of examples. The second section takes you through domain-specific applications of AI and blockchain. You’ll understand the basics of decentralized databases and file systems and connect the dots between AI and blockchain before exploring products and solutions that use them together. You’ll then discover applications of AI techniques in crypto trading. In the third section, you’ll be introduced to the DIApp design pattern and compare it with the DApp design pattern. The book also highlights unique aspects of SDLC (software development lifecycle) when building a DIApp, shows you how to implement a sample contact tracing application, and delves into the future of AI with blockchain. By the end of this book, you’ll have developed the skills you need to converge AI and blockchain technologies to build smart solutions using the DIApp design pattern.

Development Life Cycle of a DIApp
“Fast. Good. Cheap. Choose any two.
- Unknown; used by many software project managers

In this chapter, we will explore a broad set of new patterns that can be used in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) of blockchain and AI-enabled applications. It will help you to build modern applications addressing the problems faced by various industries discussed in the previous chapters. Before introducing the SDLC aspects, we will also compare traditional blockchain applications with the next wave of intelligent decentralized applications. We will also explore the architectural aspects of the new types of applications that can be built under the revised SDLC.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Applying SDLC practices in blockchains
  • Introduction to DIApps
  • Comparing DIApps and DApps
  • Designing a DIApp
  • Developing a DIApp...
