Nick D'Aloisio was only a high school student when his app Summly, which employs algorithms to accurately condense articles allowing them to be more easily read on mobile devices, attracted the attention of Li Ka-shing, the Chinese magnate currently ranked as the richest person in Asia. Li Ka-shing's investment was followed by those of Wendi Deng, Ashton Kutcher, Yoko Ono, and Stephen Fry. D'Aloisio became a household name last March when Yahoo bought Summly for a reported $30 million. He is currently employed by the company, creating and refining similar technology.
