DigitalWell Arena is hosting a track covering AI in healthcare at AIM North Symposium 2022 in Oslo on April 6th. DigitalWell Ventures is also launching a demo day at the event – giving their accelerator companies access to a key part of the ecosystem.

She was in 2021 named one of the top 30 women in Norway changing the field of Artificial Intelligence, by The Norwegian Artificial Intelligence Research Consortium. Ishita Barua is doing research on AI in gastrointestinal endoscopy and the general integration of AI in clinical decision-making.

AIM North is also creating a bridge for the cross-border cooperation between Sweden and Norway to evolve. The event takes place at Oslo Metropolitan University, which together with locations in Karlstad and Arvika offers co-working spaces for the companies of DigitalWell Venture´s dual-location accelerator.
