Our CEO, Dr. Hector Zenil, will be delivering the opening Keynote at the Predictive Analytics World summit on May 11, 2020 originally planned to be held in Munich, Germany but now to be held online. He will be talking about Responsible AI in Health Care and Medicine, our research at the forefront of science at OIA and our approach with Algocyte®. Other speakers include Dr. Anna Bauer-Mehren, Head of Data Science at Roche; and Dr. Joran Lookerbol, Director of the Centre for Machine Learning at the Netherlands Institute of Mental Health.
We are sponsors, again, of the Intelligent Health summit where Dr. Kourosh Saeb-Parsy, OIA's Chief Medical Officer, will make a major announcement introducing Project Lancelot, OIA and Algocyte's response to Covid-19 (or its consequences) with our remote health monitoring cutting-edge technology for which OIA was created and we now finds itself in the middle of a pandemic being able to make an important contribution to the challenges posed by the crisis.

We have successfully closed our latest funding round with SFC and KIN Capital leading it, award winning investors, both joining last week our multinational shareholder's board supporting OIA.
This is a major milestone as other startups and companies find it increasingly difficult to find funding in a time of crisis. We are very proud to have SFC and KIN joining OIA's journey and for the trust placed on us by investors of this calibre, it feels very much like validation of what we have been doing in the last 1.5 years developing Algocyte®.
We are thrilled that SFC and KIN have seen value in OIA even (or especially) in times like a pandemic. Their investment will help us respond to the increasing interest we are seeing in our services from the NHS. We will now start our next funding round and it is already looking very promising as we are in advanced talks with some of the largest and greatest VCs in the UK.
According to the organisers, STHLM TECH is the largest startup event in Europe where every geek, hacker, entrepreneur, investor, and designer around Stockholm comes together under one roof.
In this edition, there were 3 special guests announced, including leading investors from Canada and Holland. Omers is behind many of the top startups from Canada including Shopify, and DuckDuckGo. Originally planned to be held at the Hilton Slussen in Stockholm, the event was streamed live from live.sthlmtech.com on Monday 6 April, 2020.
Representing OIA was Dr. Kourosh Saeb-Parsy, our Chief Medical Officer, who gave a great pitch about Algocyte® for which we received useful feedback from investors and organisers who were very optimistic about our approach and business model.
There were around 140 attendants and more than 50 of them voted for the best company pitch:
OIA's Algocyte® pitch won by a large percentage (82%) against two other great startups, and we got very useful feedback from top investors.
