The idea

Sixth Sense has developed an innovative predictive system to forecast the presence of people in different areas (telecom cells) of the city of Milan.

The predictive system is able to tell our clients how many people will be present in a given place at a given time during the next day.

We have trained a proprietary algorithm to learn different patterns of people presence according to the hour of the day, the day of the week, and other factors such as weather conditions. Once trained, the algorithm is able to produce accurate forecasts of the people’s presence over the next hours and days.

Such information is highly valuable for a number of organizations in the public and private sector. For instance, it can help a Telco to optimize traffic on its network during peak hours, tell a restaurant how many groceries & waiters will be necessary tonight, help determine which are the coolest spots in town where one should open his next shop, and even help municipalities to plan public transport, waste collection & engagement of public officers.

Our vision is to offer insights on emerging market trends through advanced analysis and visualization of data. Our mission is to make it leveraging the most up-to date technologies and extensive data sources. We are now integrating traffic and payments data, to produce even more advanced and valuable insights.
