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.

Deploying the sample DIApp

So far in this chapter, we have been able to explain the problem statement, design a solution for addressing the problem, build the solution, and also make some recommendations regarding testing. The whole effort will be fruitful if you deploy this application on your own. Hence, in the following sections, I will be suggesting that you sign up for the appropriate services that are needed to deploy this sample DIApp. I will also instruct you to set up your local system with another important special piece of configuration management software required to run these programs.

Signing up for the Google Maps API

As you know, we use the Google Maps Geolocation API to get the current lat-long coordinates of the sensor. Hence, please follow the instructions in the following documentation and get yourself an API key: Make sure that you do not share your API key with anyone. It is also important that...
