He is best known as the inventor of Summly, which is a summarization and artificial intelligence technology developed with SRI International. D'Aloisio has been recognised as the youngest person to receive a round of venture capital in technology from a Billionaire, at just 15 years of age. As of March 2013, Summly was sold to Yahoo for a reported $30 million US dollars making him one of the youngest self-made millionaires ever.

D'Aloisio was awarded "Innovator of the Year" in New York City by the Wall Street Journal for his work on Summly and at Yahoo. D'Aloisio was also included in TIME Magazine's 'Time 100' as one of the world's most influential teenagers, as well as being profiled in their "Secrets of Genius" Publication.

D'Aloisio currently leads the critically acclaimed Yahoo News Digest, which launched at CES 2014 and won the 2014 Apple Design Award at WWDC for its technological and product excellence. He is also an undergraduate student at Hertford College, Oxford University, where he is studying Computer Science and Philosophy, and is the "Entrepreneur in Residence" at Airbnb.
