Problems & Solutions
Fetch AI is incorporated in the UK with an aim to create a digital economy where autonomous agents can interact with one another without human intervention. The environment will create a decentralised digital world to perform useful economic work where information trades effortlessly. There is a plethora of applications that can be adopted, but the overall bottom line is to bring data to life.
Here are several issues that Fetch AI seeks to resolve:
- Creating economic efficiencies by providing market intelligence to prevent issues such as shipping empty containers and energy waste by power grids
- The “disconnect” between centralised systems as they cannot effectively communicate with one another
- Scalability of distributed ledger technology
Features & Highlights
- Digital infrastructure for deployment of Multi Agent Systems
- Unique scalable ledger to support high transaction rates
- Synergetic computing: Intelligent smart contracts for autonomous systems
- Economic framework for governing dynamic marketplaces
- Semantic, geographic and decision based navigation for autonomous agents to deliver seamless problem solving

Token Utility & Use Cases
Fetch.AI tokens can be used for many purposes, the largest six of which are:
- Ability to connect agents and nodes to the network: FET is an access deposit token that acts as a form of stake to demonstrate desire to behave appropriately. It modulates the ability for bad actors to flood the network with undesirable nodes or agents due to the escalating cost of doing so. Fetch.AI are performing modelling and simulations on their testnets (both public and private) during the first half of 2019 to determine what this stake should be.
- Value exchange between agents: The Fetch.AI token is required in order to allow for two agents, regardless of where they are, to perform a value exchange. The Fetch.AI token is infinitely divisible, thereby supporting transactions that have very low monetary value, but in aggregate provide new and profound level of insight and opportunity.
- Access to search and discovery, and advertisement services: Fetch.AI tokens are needed to access, view and interact with the Fetch.AI search engine. This is a space optimized for autonomous digital entities, providing dynamic and autonomous price setting and negotiation.
- Access to Fetch’s multi-dimensional digital world: Fetch.AI tokens allow agents to view and explore its digital space geographically, semantically or economically. Some of these detailed views involve considerable computing time and communications between many nodes. These more resource intensive operations will require more tokens. Fetch’s AI and ML constantly restructure this world to optimize each agent’s individual view.
- Ability to access and develop ledger-based AI/ML algorithms: The Fetch.AI token enables development of and access to a broad range of machine learning and artificial intelligence tasks that are available on the ledger. These may be Fetch-developed primary services such as trust and prediction models, or they may be large-scale independently developed services for network users.
- For exchange into Fetch’s operational fuel: Operation costs in Fetch.AI are decoupled from the Fetch.AI token in a similar way to that of "gas" on the Ethereum network, but with additional functionality designed to increase the stability of such a fuel and look at addressing issues associated with high and low-velocity economies. Fetch’s operational fuel allows access to processor time for contract execution and services for agents.
Sample Target Use Cases:
- Transport: Fetch.AI is working on reducing laborious travel planning tasks by using expert autonomous economic agents to organize 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: Fetch.AI 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. Fetch.AI is working with Warwick University on creating and deploying a live energy balancing simulation.
- Supply Chain: Fetch.AI is enabling the trillion dollar steel sector to autonomously and collaboratively self-manage. It is now able to optimize its supply chain from the raw materials to the finished product, giving it the opportunity to massively reduce costs and improve efficiency.
Fetch.AI is also working on building collective prediction models to improve efficiency in cargo rail route in collaboration with a German team.
