Who we are

Helping make AI key to your future
business growth

Why 80:20?

Because it’s the success formula that just keeps on flying: 80% of results flow from 20% of your clients, 20% of your products and services, 20% of what you prioritize. 

The arrival of ChatGPT and the others doesn’t change that, but it sure shifts the dynamic! 

You still need to attract the right clients, create the right products and services, put in the right sort of effort, ask the right questions, and know where to align your focus.

Now, though, you need to factor in how AI is going to shake up the way you, your industry, and your competitors actually do business. And make no mistake: there’s nowhere to hide, no matter how much you may wish you could.

So our mission at 80:20 AI Consulting is to tease out your best options and get you started. We want you positioned at the front as the AI race hots up, not clinging on for dear life at the back. 

On the way, we’ll help you identify the AI 20% sweet spot that delivers 80% of the results — whatever they look like for you.

Meet 80:20 AI's
software expert, Chris Downey

I’m the innovator behind 80:20 AI Consulting and I’ve been at the cutting edge of software development since the early 1990s.

Here’s a snapshot of what I’ve achieved along the way, including examples of creative thinking that were — and still are — well ahead of the game. The aim of sharing this isn’t to show off but to demonstrate that I have the experience to tease out the smartest AI solutions.

I’m a self-taught software developer. I talked my way into an admin position at IBM based on what I’d learned about the IBM PS/2. With the help of two IBM old-timer mentors, I took a simple ‘manage the class schedule’ role and upended it to create for myself a world-class education.

After a year, I emerged with enough knowledge and real-world experience to land my first professional software development job. 

I’m now creating a brand new area of innovation: informed consent technology. Currently under development is a LLM (large language model) that powers a freedom-loving, Nuremberg Code-respecting, vaccine-risk expert chatbot.

If you’d like to explore how I can help you best harness AI in your business, please schedule a call. And if you’d like me to speak at an event you’re organising — or just have a general question — please message us via our contact form
