Enabling automation with conscious consideration for those automation renders more vulnerable
XEIA (/zeyˈyə/, Cross-Platform Ethically Implemented Automation) is a Cognitive Automation (CA) and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) organization that enables anyone with access to a desktop computer to train their very own software robots that automate the mundane repetitive parts of their workday.
Unlike a typical organization which is founded in order to enrich a limited number of individuals, XEIA believes that the exponential increase in productivity that automation enables has presented us with the opportunity to provide for every member of our human family.
From awareness to analysis and action to evaluation, successful vulnerability reduction counters disenfranchisement and erosion of living standards, resulting in an increase of community sustainability and individual bargaining power
As automated tasks grow in power and complexity it becomes increasingly important that every rendered outcome come paired with a fully auditable record providing a comprehensive and easy-to-understand explanation of: what outcome was requested, how that outcome was to be fulfilled, what outcome was produced, and who is rewarded & responsible in the process of producing that outcome.
True Post-Automation economic sustainability requires we as one move beyond the consolidation of value through acquisition to enabling equality of access to automation's revenue cycles. By doing so we, our human family, provide ourselves the firm economic foundation necessary to provide mobility, security, stability, liberty, and resilience across our economic spectrum.
To ensure that our organization regards our mission as highly as other organizations may regard shareholders, XEIA has elected to incorporate as a Public-Benefit Corporation (PBC).
Furthermore XEIA is the first Artificial Intelligence organization to commit its mission as a Public-Benefit toward assisting those that are made more vulnerable or disenfranchised as a result of automation.
This is by design so as to provide the greater public with an Artificial Intelligence option that includes:
Whereas members of conventional enterprise are incentivized to provide Artificial Intelligence in pursuit of enriching a limited number of individuals, XEIA’s structure as a Public-Benefit incentivizes its members to develop Artificial Intelligence for the betterment of all humanity.
This incentive is further reinforced by establishing an organization-wide Maximum Sustainable Salary that XEIA employees can only exceed by also increasing the 99% Public Disbursement
As automation gains greater adoption in society, the need for a publicly accountable forum becomes imperative. This forum is to function as a means for the public to express and investigate its concerns and vision regarding the state of automation and its trajectory with a mechanism enabling public intervention if necessary.
As a PBC, XEIA is required by law to present progress regarding its mission regarding ethical automation at least once every two years. XEIA intends to do this every year via our annual convention, XEIACon.
At our convention XEIA will be sharing progress, impact, and ongoing research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Universal Basic Income, and related digital infrastructure development.
XEIA, in addition to being a Public-Benefit Corporation, is also pending a voluntary certification by B Lab. B Lab is an independent third-party non-profit organization dedicated to using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
Full B Corp status is attainable for XEIA once it has been in operation for a full year.
XEIA’s Maximum Sustainable Salary is an internal figure establishing the maximum amount any member of the organization can receive as their base salary, regardless of their position in the organization or their years of commitment.
Benefits of a Maximum Sustainable Salary include:
Factors dictating the Maximum Sustainable Salary may change and adjust the figure’s value over time. Such factors can include the state of the job market, adjustments for cost of living, and year-over-year inflation.
For those working on the XEIA project that are motivated by the prospect of earning additional income after base salary, XEIA provides Inclusive Profit Disbursement.
Profits made in excess of the organization’s salary and operating costs (such as Research & Development, expansion of infrastructure, settling of debts, etc,) are allocated to these instruments:
XEIA expresses its mission of ethical automation by allocating 99% of its profit to public communities outside of its organization, beginning with those most vulnerable to the effects of extreme poverty (communities whose members sustain on less than US$1.90 per day).
XEIA’s ultimate goal is to share the prosperity generated by automation with these vulnerable communities and ensure that the greater public has equality access to automation's recurring revenue.
To ensure that XEIA’s team members are incentivized to grow the 99% Charitable Disbursement they have conversely been incentivized with a 1% Performance Disbursement
Equal parts (1) a driver to grow the 99% Public Disbursement, (2) an internal performance incentive, and (3) an expression of gratitude to the XEIA team for maintaining a public-benefit digital infrastructure, those who contribute to XEIA full-time receive a portion of the 1% Performance Disbursement of XEIA’s profit.
This portion is determined by the amount of equity they have invested in the organization through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan.
XEIA may also issue bonds to finance expansion and new projects. On these occasions bond-holders are allocated their share of the profit first, then the remaining profits divided accordingly.
