Book Description

Blockchain, Internet of Things, and Artificial Intelligence provides an integrated overview and technical description of the fundamental concepts of blockchain, IoT and AI technologies. State-of-the-art techniques are explored in-depth to discuss the challenges faced in each domain. The convergence of these revolutionized technologies has leveraged several areas that paid good attention by academicians and industry people which in turn promote the book accessibility more extensively.

Discussions about an integrated perspective on the influence of AI, BC and IoT for smart cities, healthcare, and other business sectors illuminates the benefits and opportunities in the ecosystems world-wide. The authors have focused on the real-world examples and applications and highlighted the significance of its strength that will transform the readers thinking towards finding potential solutions.  

The faster maturity and stability of blockchain is going to be the key differentiator in Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things. This book discusses the deadly combination in realizing intelligent systems, services, and environments. The contributors have presented their technical evaluation and comparison with existing technologies; the theoretical explanation and experimental case studies related to real-time scenarios are also discussed. 

  • Discusses how blockchain holds the potential to significantly increase data while boosting accuracy and integrity in IoT generated data and AI processed information.
  • Elucidates definitions, concepts, theories and assumptions involved in a smart contract and distributed ledger related to IoT systems and AI approaches.
  • Provides the real-world use of blockchain technologies in different IoT systems and further studies of its influence in supply chain and logistics, automotive industry, smart homes, pharmaceutical industry, agriculture, etc. are also presented.
  • Readers can still find the way of employing blockchain in IoT and AI, helping them to understand what they can and cannot do with blockchain. Perhaps, more importantly, it will provide the readers to get aware of how the industry avoid some of the pitfalls of traditional data sharing strategies.

This book is suitable for graduates, academic professors, research scholars, IT professionals, and industry experts.
