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.

Summary

Both AI and blockchain are major technologies that are catalyzing the pace of innovation. The combination of these two technologies is expected to redesign the whole industrial paradigm. This chapter has articulated how we can empower blockchain and its decentralized applications using various AI techniques and models. We covered the evolution of applications and contrasted different types. We also explained the latest problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and discussed how to tackle these problems by taking contact tracing as an example use case. We covered the problem statement, the solution approach, and the technical architecture in order to develop a sample contact tracing application using the DIApp design pattern. We also highlighted the tools needed to test each solution component and make it more robust. Finally, we explained how to sign up for each of the dependent services used by the solution. This chapter has enabled you to develop a paradigm of thinking where...
