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 other domains

In this section, I will be outlining the problems and a to-be scenario with benefits. However, you will not see solution approaches. I expect you to carry out further research regarding these challenges, expand on the analysis, and propose a solution architecture by yourself as an exercise.

With the to-be scenario and the as-is scenario suggested for each domain, you are encouraged to come up with a solution approach of your own. You can follow the format from the possible solutions I have suggested from the sections in this chapter.

Let's now explore the issues faced by law and order authorities and try to address their problems.

Law and order

The police department, local administration, and judiciary system work closely together in order to protect people from scams, violence, and other forms of criminal activities. This group of government agencies could collectively be referred to as law and order.

As-is scenario
