Labs An experimental, futuristic and creative approach

Algorithms

Algorithms are re-coding our very way of life, as we know it. They now influence our workplaces, relationships, enterprises, government and even the human mind. But are we as a nation, from villages to metros, prepared for this transcendence? Is such development necessarily positive in its totality? Or, must we act immediately to ensure that algorithms enable us and do not destroy us?

Society

Society is a collective of human beings, not units on a data matrix. Technology must only be leveraged to protect human rights, eradicate inequalities and enable a healthy life. Code cannot be allowed to serve the agendas of exclusive centres of power or capital.

Question

One must question if conventional ideas of impact are really moving the needle any longer, as AI and automation put humans at threat of irrelevance – should we build more schools or re-imagine curriculums and learning formats?

X Billion Labs is a for profit holding company of futuristic impact enterprises. We are studying threats and opportunities caused by disruptions such as climate change, artificial intelligence, overpopulation, unemployability and data driven capitalism to build solutions that will protect as well as enable a quality life for India's next billion people in this new age.

Currently we have two labs, operating as independent subsidiaries:

Skills Lab

An intelligent learning ecosystem providing affordable access to 21st century skills, which will enable our youth to remain professionally relevant in the digital age. The platform will consequently provide cognitive, data-driven access to future ready talent for Startups and SMEs to scale their business agendas: both being the backbone of our economy i.e. our youth and enterprises.

Action Lab

Human choices and actions are the root cause of problems such as climate change, overpopulation, resource depletion and income inequity. A 21st century behavioural code must be built, in an enabling ecosystem, for humanity to lead a quality life. X Billion’s Action Lab leverages modern behavioural science, story telling, digital platforms and futuristic policy design to build new age social movements.

Our collective mission is to positively transform 10 million lives by 2030.
