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.

Converging AI and blockchain in government

At the time of writing, the total market size of government software business is estimated to reach around USD 15 billion over the next 3 to 5 years. A lot of progress in society depends on services offered by local government, as well as national-level governments. Some countries, such as the United States, refer to it as the Federal Government. Citizens are dependent on government in one way or another for basic services such as ID enrollment, and obtaining birth and death certificates.

In the following sections, let's try to understand some of the real-world challenges faced by governments across the globe today. We will also observe how to address them with the application of blockchain and AI technologies.

Let's begin by exploring the challenges faced by governments in the taxation domain.


To develop a long-lasting economy and to provide public services, governments rely upon levying direct and indirect taxes on its citizens...
