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.

In this chapter, we identified some of the best use cases in large-scale industries, identified the issues faced by these industries, and articulated the real-world applications of AI and blockchain across several domains. We covered these aspects across several domains such as knowledge management, real estate, media, identity management, and royalty management. We have also covered some special issues that are faced by the information security domain and how IPFS can be used to address them. I hope that what you've learned in this chapter enables you to develop your hands-on skill in terms of observing, analyzing, and developing relevant case studies, as well as help you come up with extensive ideas so that you can craft better solutions and develop an eye for critical thinking.

In the next chapter, we will understand the basics of decentralized database concepts and learn more about the decentralized data service providers and their offerings.
