Oslo.AI is a leading tech community with the mission to spearhead the AI ecosystem development in Oslo and beyond. We’re proud to partner up with Oslo Innovation Week and Microsoft to present you with a special event this September.

You probably know that AI can play chess and swap faces, but can AI solve more meaningful problems faced by humanity? In this event, we gathered experts and professionals who do exactly that – applying AI to address societal challenges. From reducing carbon footprint to supporting cancer diagnosis, AI is being utilized across industries and organizations to develop innovative solution that contribute to United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Join us for an evening of knowledge sharing and connection building. Be part of a global movement that applies AI to design and build a sustainable future.


The talks:

1. Jan Walter Parr, Chief Creative Officer @ EGGS Design

"Design for A Sustainable Future with AI"

As Chief Creative Officer of EGGS and “firesoul” for Sustainability, Jan Walter has experience from many design-driven innovation projects. In EGGS, he works on developing methods for designing new products and services that increase triple bottom line effects (People, Planet, Profit). Through practical case examples such as Loadsmart and Picterus, he will show how EGGS works with AI from a design perspective, and share the “value angles” that EGGS applies when hunting the triple bottom line. The talk will serve as an intro and reminder of the bigger picture of People, Planet, and Profit within which AI must aim to be beneficial.

2. Odd Sandbekkhaug, Co-founder & CEO @ Infiniwell AI

"Democratizing healthcare through AI"

What will we do when the supply of physicians is far outweighed by the demands of a growing and ever-longer-living patient population? Well it’s not a question for the future, we are already facing that situation today. How can we serve a growing population with fewer medical workers? In this talk we will explore how IoT + cloud based AI can help relieve the pressure and deliver new diagnostic options to people who never had access to medical specialists before. The last few years have seen an inflection point in availability of compute power, mobility and network infrastructure. It’s a perfect time to put artificial intelligence technology to real use today, and help improve lives at internet scale.

3. Anoop Sharma, AI & Analytics Practice Lead @ Cognizant Nordics
