Democratizing Prosperity: Through Innovation, Omniscience, and Collective Intelligence

Democratizing Prosperity: Through Innovation, Omniscience, and Collective Intelligence

About Us

AI Humanity is a young startup that builds multidisciplinary technologies and executes transformative programs to help the unprosperous take the leading role in their own economic well-being and self-actualization—that is, their prosperity.

Overview of AI Humanity

— Why and how we are democratizing prosperity

Because widespread poverty and generational hardship and underachievement are solvable problems; and because they devastate our minds, bodies, families, and communities for generations; and because we (at AI Humanity) believe we have the definitive solution to at least alleviate these problems, we are morally obligated to build and execute our solution with a sense of urgency.

Why we are democratizing prosperity

The alternative to prosperity is devastating and enduring.

The following passage was lifted from our book (Information-Knowledge Theory: The definitive solution to generational poverty and underachievement, and massive income and wealth inequality) and lightly edited for this website.

First, because widespread prosperity is feasible today and because of its consequences (noted below), we are morally summoned to its pursuit.

Second, in our capitalist societies in the 21st Century—underscored by individual responsibility, competition, and interdependence for survival—the alternative to prosperity is not an “ordinary life,” or the indignity of the poor, or the indebtedness of the middle-class. The alternative to prosperity is far worse, more devastating and enduring than most realize.

For the unprosperous, no prosperity has always meant complete economic dependence on the wealthy; a lack of autonomy and agency and well-being; continuous resentment toward the prosperous, especially the wealthy; inter-group intolerance and dissension; refugee crises and desperate economic migrations; violent crimes and social instability; “deaths of despair” (particularly working-class White Americans); heartbreaking evictions and foreclosures when the inevitable cyclical recessions arrive; mass incarceration and destruction of families and communities; generational underachievement and hardship; and epigenetic pathologies of many sorts that last for generations. (Information-Knowledge Theory, Richard Bovell, founder of AI Humanity)

How we are democratizing prosperity

— We empower the unprosperous with the same advantageous that have benefitted the prosperous for generations.

As noted on our homepage, we are using the principles of Information-Knowledge Theory to properly democratize prosperity.

Our work focuses on two interrelated areas:

  1. Individual prosperity:Our principles, innovations, social movement and policies, interdisciplinary knowledge, and technological programs seamlessly work together as a single system that provides any individual—the unprosperous (that is, from the devastatingly poor, working poor, or distressed middle class)—with the attainable and inaccessible resources and advantages necessary to overcome poverty and get on the path to prosperity.

  2. In-group and intergroup prosperity  Because institutionalized factors—at the international, national, societal, organizational, and cultural levels—nurture as well as inhibit economic success and perpetuate poverty for groups and the individuals within the group, we help such institutions and groups:  - resolve the social and economic entropy: that is, resolve the institutionalized forces (including by NGOs) that inhibit or disrupt the chances of economic success    - alleviate the factors of poverty  - amplify the factors of prosperity, for example, provide easy access to the resources for business development and market-creating innovations   - and capitalize on the unique advantages, unrecognized opportunities, and untapped potential in their group, community, and country.

   This comprehensive process allows groups, communities, and countries to optimize their capabilities and cultivate ample opportunities for prosperity for the majority of their members or citizens.

Why our solution differs much from others

First, our integrated technologies, which comprise over 10 comprehensive programs, embody our Informatin-Knowledge Theory philosophy. For an overview of what each individual program does and how our overall solutions work, see the Overview of Our Solution page.

More broadly, we believe that to successfully alleviate poverty (including pathological inequality causing "deaths of despair" the United States) and generational underachievement, and to help the unprosperous with realistic opportunities for lasting prosperity, in any given place, we must simultaneously alleviate most of the problematic factors that perpetuate poverty and inequality in that place. But these "most problematic factors" number over two dozen in any long-standing impoverished community or country, the reason generational underachievement and widespread economic hardship have persisted even after 70 years and Trillions of dollars spent on hundreds of interventions to solve the problems.


Important Side Note: We describe prosperity as well-being and self-actualization, not as merely financial success. See the Prosperity Score page for more on this.


At the very least, we must attempt to alleviate all of the most significant problematic factors at the same time, or else alleviating one or two invariably ensures the others remain and overwhelm the resolved ones. For example, we can't help poor inner-city students (burdened with innumerable disadvantages of generational poverty and every-day institutionalized challenges) by merely hiring better public school teachers or creating more after-school programs to keep the youngsters "out of trouble" or by spending more on welfare programs for the poor. Nor can we resolve the complexities of the problems by voting for the politicians who pander to the needs of the underprivileged.

None of those remedies have alleviated poverty in any community in the United States and elsewhere.

We need a comprehensive, interdisciplinary solution that tackles the many facets of underachievement and poverty at the source of the problems and with ambitious solutions that endure for generations.

Crucially, we must address all the significant problems simultaneously to ensure none of them derail progress with the others. For example, if we resolve truancy but don't resolve the many other devastations the underprivileged student is facing at home and in the community (e.g., peer pressure to partake in illegal activities to earn a living, absent fathers, overworked mothers, drug-addicted family members, lack of treatment for mental health pathologies, compromised mental bandwidth due to scarcity, oppressive and unfair laws and institutions that are supposed to protect not penalize), any improvement in truancy alone wouldn't do any good, as the student would still underachieve, live in misery and hardship, and suffer the myriad afflictions of poverty—a cycle that has been repeated for generations and continues today.

Thus, at AI Humanity, our technologies and programs and policies simultaneously address all the consequential factors of poverty and underachievement because we must, and we can.

Why we are a for-profit, not a nonprofit

—We are because it is the option most beneficial to us and our customers, the unprosperous.

The following passage, with light editing for this website's target audience, was lifted from Universalprosperia (one of our forthcoming books), by Richard Bovell, the founder of AI Humanity:

After a comprehensive study of the history of human successes and failures (including the different economic systems and the varying paths traveled by organizations, corporations, peoples, and societies to economic success) in varying countries over the last two centuries, we have come to believe that operating as a for-profit in the market economy gives AI Humanity the best chance to accomplish its core mission and exceedingly ambitious goals. For we can only succeed if we are fully accountable to our stakeholders, especially the unprosperous, and can operate at significant scales, both of which the market economy facilitates. And if our solutions fail to help the unprosperous, we expect the market would rightfully invalidate our solutions and allow better solutions to triumph.

But if our philosophies, principles, technologies, and innovations—encapsulated in our exhaustive information-knowledge theory solution—do indeed help the unprosperous rise to prosperity in the communities where we operate, the market will validate our solution and we will succeed. In addition, such success (due to market forces and mechanisms) may further give us exponential, expansive opportunities (not typically realized by nonprofits) to help the unprosperous in many more regions around the globe (on a larger scale) and in more significant ways.

Furthermore, AI Humanity expects to oversee the development of many new technologies and industries; thus, only through the market (as a for-profit) can these innovations become a reality and bequeath the success to the unprosperous, who will lead the efforts to bring the innovations to reality.

On the contrary, if we were a nonprofit—operating with inconsequential accountability and negligible market feedback and absent market forces—we could take many years or likely decades to make small improvements in the lives of the unprosperous, as many nonprofits do.

So, we accept that operating as a for-profit may be riskier and perhaps more challenging than operating as a nonprofit since we cannot benefit from donations (Americans alone give $273 Billion a year to charity) and volunteerism for our core operations. Yet, we are grateful for this opportunity, no matter the challenges, to commit our lives to the crucial and fulfilling endeavor of helping the unprosperous rise to prosperity.(Information-Knowledge Theory, 2020, Richard Bovell)
