Xomnia is a word combining the letter ‘X’ – the unknown – and “Omnia” – Latin for everything. Our team of data scientists and big data engineers are trained to find the undefined – X – in all the relevant data sources – Omnia. This unknown – X – is untapped business value. Combining the X and Omnia you get the Xomnia spirit. Eager, curious and dedicated people, who have the belief that the future is big data.
For the municipality of Utrecht, Xomnia has built a model that predicts the occurrence of burglaries in each district of Utrecht for a given week. From the date and time of the burglary we derived weather conditions, holidays and special events. Sociodemographic statistics of the neighbourhoods have been derived, as well as certain points of interest, like street lights, cameras, trees, parks and large garbage containers. The Burglary Predictor built by Xomnia enables the municipality of Utrecht to prevent burglaries by data-drive decision making.
