Digital technologies have gone through extensive research and innovation that saw the domain achieve immense maturity and stability. This development led to all types of physical, mechanical, electrical and electronic devices in our personal and professional environments that have joined mainstream computing. As such, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things and Blockchain Technology have emerged as the most prominent enablers of this digital revolution.

IoT promises many applications that can be fit in human's day-to-day activities making life more comfortable, safe and smart. With billions of connected devices, they are expected to generate a massive amount of real-time data, enabling researchers and developers to deeply investigate this data using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to offer benefits and solve problems that would not be obvious to detect otherwise.

Blockchain technology is defined as one of the best inventions after the Internet as presented in various literature. This technology allows value exchange without the need for a central authority and ensures trust powered by its decentralized architecture. As such, the growing use of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the rise of Artificial Intelligence are to be benefited immensely by this technology that can offer devices and applications with data security, decentralization, accountability and reliable authentication.

This edited book will deliberate upon prospects of Blockchain Technology for facilitating the analysis and acquisition of big data using AI and IoT devices in various application domains.
