About the project

AIxAI is a project by NTT and Nikken Sekkei Research Institute (NSRI) for real-time smart city management that uses an artificial intelligence system that monitors and processes climate and energy data, along with data derived from sensors that track the movement of people, to come up with solutions for issues in the community, traffic, and energy.

More project information

AIxAI is a project by NTT and Nikken Sekkei Research Institute (NSRI) for real-time smart city management that uses an artificial intelligence system that monitors and processes climate and energy data, along with data derived from sensors that track the movement of people, to come up with solutions for issues in the community, traffic, and energy.

NTT’s artificial intelligence technology “corevo” can decode real time sensory information, explore optimal scenarios, and then design and execute navigation and control. In addition to collecting sensory data on human traffic and congestion, it processes big data on climate and energy to optimize air conditioning, operation of elevators and escalators, cleaning and personnel costs, and tenant businesses based on the human and vehicle traffic in different times and locations. NTT is cooperating with Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a real estate company, to conduct field trials for the system. So far, they have experimented with the system in COREDO Muromachi 1, a commercial building with various restaurants and stores, in August 2017. NTT and NSRI also aim to extend the use of the system to large scale facilities such as airports, terminal stations, and stadiums.

In regard to SDGs, the project will contribute to Sustainable Cities and Communities by allowing real-time area management for efficient resource distribution. It also contributes to Climate Action by reducing energy use and pollution.
