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.

Comparing DIApps and DApps

In this section, we will outline the issues faced by enterprises in developing and using DApps. Further, we will outline the solution architecture of both the DApp and DIApp patterns in the enterprise scenario and outline the key differences.

Challenges in the enterprise

Although several blockchain platforms represented new waves of experimental approaches, most of these approaches radically focused on the full disintermediation of all the entities involved in a business process, thereby making the solutions purely peer-to-peer. The reason for the full disintermediation in most of the emerging patterns is due to the maximalist nature of blockchain to decentralize the world. In contrast to this ideology, enterprise solutions fundamentally rely on maintaining accountability among key stakeholders without full disintermediation. Hence, there is a need for an enhanced pattern that is fit for adoption by enterprises.
