TEDxTelAvivSalon - Yanki Margalit - 3 Steps To Save Mankind

Yanki Margalit built his first computer at the age of 14, started his first business at 15, and was kicked out of school at 17. In 1984 Yanki built KnowPro, a software program that used artificial intelligence to help human experts in their decision-making process. To protect his software against piracy, Yanki developed the HASP, a hardware- based software protection key. With these two products he started Aladdin Knowledge Systems in 1985. Under his leadership as Chairman & CEO, Aladdin grew to become a global company (Nasdaq/ALDN). Since then, Yanki has been busy thinking and speaking about technology, entrepreneurship, innovation, and human evolution, while nurturing a new love affair with molecular biology and biotechnology. Since the mid-nineties, Yanki has supported the creation and development of many nonprofit organizations and social enterprises. Yanki is the chairman of SpaceIL , and is currently engaged in starting a Singularity Incubator that will seek to nourish early-stage technology start-ups that aim to address humanity's major challenges.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
