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.

The benefits of combining blockchain and AI

Simply put, the business benefit of using AI is the reduction of costs, and the business benefit of using blockchain is that transparency is enabled in processes. When both technologies are used together, you can apply a new class of solutions to a wide variety of problems in today's world that lack transparency and cost efficiency. In the following sections, we will observe products and solutions that use blockchain and AI together to solve real-world challenges. I would consider the following products and solutions the first generation of applications that use both technologies; there's probably more to come in the next wave of digital transformation.
