What we're building


Fetch brings the world closer together and delivers power to the individual. We’ve built the world’s first truly smart ledger, allowing data to act autonomously. Using machine learning and AI technology, we enable data to cooperate, solving problems instantly and presenting answers directly to you.

Fetch is the missing critical infrastructure for tomorrow’s digital economy.

The Fetch digital world


Autonomous Economic Agents

Fetch is a decentralised digital world in which useful economic activity takes place. This activity is performed by Autonomous Economic Agents (AEAs). These are digital entities that can transact independently of human intervention and can represent themselves, devices, services or individuals. Agents can work alone or together to construct solutions to today’s complex problems.

Open Economic Framework

The digital world in which agents live is called the Open Economic Framework (OEF). This world acts as the ultimate value exchange dating agency: each agent sees a space optimised in real-time just for them, where important things are clear and visible and less important things are simply removed. The OEF provides the senses for agents: their sight, touch and hearing to present to them a world unique to the viewer.

Smart Ledger

Underpinning the digital world is the smart ledger: a new generation of learning ledger that provides a collective super-intelligence to support agents’ individual intelligences. It provides market intelligence, previously locked up in centralised silos, to everyone so that any agent that wants something is assured of the shortest possible route to find another that has it. Fetch’s smart ledger scales to support millions of transactions per second and is able to restructure itself to present the OEF’s digital world to the agents that use it.

Applications


Transport: Low friction, connected travel.

Fetch is working on reducing laborious travel planning tasks by using expert autonomous economic agents to organise complex trips, predict potential misconnections and dynamically reroute journeys, rearrange travel plans and rebooking reservations without intervention. The goal is to improve users’ and transport providers’ efficiency, service levels and satisfaction.

Energy: Don’t switch, be fluid!

Fetch is working on creating a fluid energy model to deliver the most effective energy solution to households without the friction of switching suppliers. Consumers could potentially change providers down to the minute or even by each appliance’s unique energy demands. The concept is based around Software Defined Digital Cells.

Supply Chain: It’s alive.

Fetch is enabling the trillion dollar steel sector to autonomously and collaboratively self-manage. It is now able to optimise its supply chain from the raw materials to the finished product, giving it the opportunity to massively reduce costs and improve efficiency.
