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.

AI- and Blockchain-Driven Databases
"From store of value ... toward value of storage"

Databases have been a critical component in the development of applications, across all generations of the web. While the advent of databases started from a centralized design pattern, there have been several iterations of innovations over the past three decades. These new patterns address key pain points of centralized databases.

In this chapter, we will dive deep into a new generation of decentralized databases and filesystems based on innovative design patterns. Some of these design patterns inspire traditional applications to blend Artificial Intelligence (AI) and blockchain technologies. We will observe different types of decentralized databases and understand how they help to perform better AI analysis alongside blockchains.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics...
