DroneTalks | The future of Drone Operations and the Power of Automated Negotiation AI


Think AI is just about chatbots? Think again!

Did you know that AI is playing a critical role in drone operations? In our exclusive interview led by Eszter Kovacs, Co-founder and CEO of DroneTalks, with Shoji Nishimura, COO of Intent Exchange, we delve into how their innovative Automated Negotiation AI is not just a concept but a practical tool already improving the safety and efficiency of aerial operations.

This technology, developed under one of NADO’s projects and supported by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Industry and Technology, is actively deployed in high-stakes environments.

Key takeaway: Intent Exchange’s AI isn't merely about automating tasks; it’s about creating smarter, scalable solutions that tackle the complex challenges of modern drone operations. By digitalizing negotiation and conflict resolution, they're setting a new standard for what AI can achieve in the drone industry.

During a demonstration in Wakkanai, Japan, Intent Exchange’s AI coordinated a network of drones delivering medical supplies. It seamlessly integrated with local air traffic, ensuring timely deliveries while adhering to stringent safety standards.

Another key application of their AI technology is in urban settings where it assesses and visualizes ground risks, optimizing drone flight paths to avoid densely populated areas or sensitive infrastructures. This technology not only improves safety but also enhances the efficiency of drone operations in complex environments.
