Faethm begins with a 15-year simulation of the future impact of automation and augmentation for each job in an entire economy. Faethm correlates each of the 244 attributes to the extent of automation of each job.
Each attribute is assigned a correlation coefficient based on their association to jobs that avoid automation. Those with a high positive correlation receive a five-star rating, while those with a low positive correlation receive a one-star rating. Any job attributes with a negative correlation (correlated to automatable jobs) do not receive a star. That is, any job attribute that is not important to the future of work receives a no-star rating.
