Block-chain and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have also been making significant technical advancements separately in recent years. Block-chain provides a decentralized, distributed and reliable technique for processing and authenticating transactions. On the other hand, AI allows end-devices to collaboratively train and update a model of mutual machine learning while protecting their data privacy. In terms of protection and privacy, both technologies are considered to have many beneficial advantages for today's needs. In addition, protection and privacy are enhanced with complete communication and delivery as blockchain and AI technologies are allowed Beyond 5G (B5G) and 6G. The research emphasis is on incorporating and unifying technologies to produce new and smart networking services and applications as both block-chain and AI advance further. At present, the suggested solutions are far from feasible for large-scale, specialized services and applications. In order to have systems that are scalable and stable and able to manage increasingly increasing data, there are still many unresolved technological challenges.

A major milestone in academia and business has been reached in the world with the introduction of 5G communication networks. Wireless connectivity has accomplished a tremendous success, and is now looking to go past 5G. In the artificial intelligence (AI) platform, the exploration of 6G has emerged to collect sensor data with the help of high-performance computing networks. In the growth of communication networks there arises a purpose of efficient, secure and reliable technique for transactions between the users. Nowadays users are very concerned about the end-end privacy and the threat in the form of external attacks to get their valuable information. This issue provides a privacy protected B5G communication network secured with the computational capability of AI to handle the external threats and to enhance the network efficiency. This special issue aims to bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results in Block chain and Machine learning and to present novel applications envisioned in the era of 5G/6G communication. We invite researchers to contribute original research and review articles that address important challenges related to AI powered Block chain enabled 5G/6G networking. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:


• 5G and 6G secure wireless communication using AI-based Blockchain
