The Problem

By 2020, data science and analytics jobs in the US are projected to grow by 15 percent—much faster than average. As AI and the rapid emergence of new technologies transform the workplace, businesses will be forced to reevaluate their talent, strategies, and workforce needs. And to fill these jobs, individuals will need to become agile data thinkers.

The Solution

Refactored.ai solves for the global skills gap challenge, providing a scalable solution to keep workforce skills current and relevant in the midst of rapid technological advancement. Refactored.ai's on-demand reskilling platform increases data literacy across organizations and transforms employees into data thinkers.

Through a learn-by-doing approach, personalized learning paths, and real-time data assessments, learners are able to immediately grasp and apply new skills at all stages of their career. Refactored.ai ensures that everyone—regardless of age, race, income, or current occupation—is set up to succeed in an AI-driven future.

Market Opportunity

  • Research shows that companies in the top third of their industry in the use of data-driven decision making were 5 percent more productive and 6 percent more profitable than competitors.
  • Organizations know that they need to adopt AI in order to survive, but over 80 percent don’t have the current infrastructure needed to support AI adoption and thrive in an AI-powered market.
  • Refactored.ai is the only platform that offers end-to-end solutions to mitigate the impending workforce transitions and wide-scale challenges that the adoption of AI will bring.
