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.

This chapter has highlighted the role of AI in cryptocurrencies and their emerging economies. Starting with the key differentiation between fiat and cryptocurrencies, we have introduced you to various practices in the cryptocurrency market such as trading, prediction, arbitrage, and market making. We have not only introduced you to the basic concepts but also identified the key issues faced by traders in the industry. Finally, we have introduced some approaches to solving the problems using AI and aiming for better, more efficient, and higher-profit-making models using several AI techniques such as ARIMA, LSTM, and so on.

We hope this chapter enabled you to identify the key white spaces of applying AI techniques into the crypto markets by analyzing some of the common approaches practiced today. In the next chapter, we will understand the formal software development life cycle required to build and deploy such applications.
