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.

"Blockchain and AI are the binary stars in IT. They are here to help save humanity from an invisible virus."

With it being more than 10 years since the advent of blockchain and AI, there is now a whole new range of solutions that can be built by combining both technologies. By combining these two technologies in a new way, we can address some tough problems. In this chapter, we'll propose a better pattern for application development that leverages the combination of AI and blockchain. This is a hands-on chapter where you will learn more about using blockchain and AI techniques to build a smart application that could potentially save us from further outbreaks of COVID-19, along with other agents of infection. By the end of this chapter, you will be able to identify the benefits of Decentralized intelligent application (DIApp) as you build a sample...
