  • When?
  • What will this be worth?
  • And finally, how does this impact the products, markets, channels and customers you operate?

The Faethm AI Analytics SaaS Platform enables users to Scenario Model the effects of disruptive technologies on their contexts, to inform strategy and policy and to guide investment in new technologies and new industries.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is not the end of work, it is the rapid and at-scale transition to new types of work.

Unlike static research reports and media about the Future of Work, Faethm shows all three Jobs outcomes – AUTOMATE, AUGMENT & ADDITION – and presents a Job Corridor of very detailed learning pathways to allow people to develop new skills for tomorrow’s work, and move to jobs of the future.

Our customers use Faethm to understand the supply and demand of jobs and skills in the future, and to structure, size and equip their workforces for the work and opportunities that new technologies create.

Faethm’s analytics engine integrates expert elicitation from R&D with machine learning and proprietary analytics, and blends this with your data in a highly secure environment.

Data from 200 countries spanning industries, trade, exports, GDP, technology readiness, employment and many other topics are added to deliver context about both your market and those you focus on.

The outputs are delivered as visualisations, filters and insights in the SaaS layer, which describes technology’s impact to your organisation and context.

Unlike research reports, Faethm’s analytics and SaaS features are constantly updated as new technologies emerge and mature. This means your Faethm experience is always up to date – you won’t need another research report 6 months after the last one.

We are delighted to be the 16th company, globally, to be invited to be a Member of the World Economic Forum’s Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution in San Francisco.  We deliver Faethm direct to clients, and in partnership with some of the world’s foremost companies. They include:


Kay Firth-ButterfieldHead of AI, World Economic Forum Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, San Francisco

“We are excited that Faethm has joined the Centre to help us close the gap between emerging technology and policy. Faethm will enable us to see the impact of technology on jobs and co-create policy for the benefit of humanity.”

Krista JonesManaging Director, Work & Learning, MaRS, Discovery District, Toronto

“MaRS Discovery District is excited to partner with Faethm to facilitate innovation adoption with our key public and private stakeholders. Faethm builds a bridge between work structures of today and future technologies that address both economic and social outcomes.”

Dr Markus BowlesChair, Institute of Working Futures Australia

“The Faethm Platform works. It fills the space of great uncertainty and sets a future direction for the organisation. It’s a winning solution that enables our clients to plan with a higher level of precision and measure against reliable data.”

Andrew GareyGeneral Manager, BlueScope Steel Australia

“Faethm tangibly estimates the impact of technology on our business. That we can understand the magnitude of strategic change is compelling.”

Hon. Ed HusicShadow Minister for the Digital Economy and Future of Work, Australia

“Reports warn that automation will massively impact on job markets yet until now, Australia has lacked concrete, tailored data to understand our local context. Industry and Government require quality insights to shape an effective response to the issue of automation.”

Paul ShetlerStone & Chalk first Expert in Residence

“Faethm help us with workforce planning and retraining, enabling us to identify what parts of business can be automated and in what time frame.”











And too often these are words that cause fear, not hope, as people wonder where rapid technology change is taking us.
