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.

Introduction to the AI Landscape
“AI sees the invisible and reaches the unreachable.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the fundamental concepts that evolved well before computers existed on every desk in homes and offices across the world. Today, AI is applied across various domains to optimize processes and address issues where human abilities and outreach do not provide a feasible solution. In this chapter, we will briefly examine the history of AI, its classifications, and the applications of AI in enterprises.

This chapter provides a detailed overview of the AI landscape, covering the following key topics:

  • AI – key concepts
  • Types of AI
  • Forms of AI and approaches
  • AI in digital transformation
  • AI platforms and tools
