About Zack Dvey-Aharon, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of AEYE Health
Zack started working on data analytics when he was 12 years old. Later, when he was doing his Ph.D. in machine learning at Tel Aviv University, he developed a fascination with machine learning and the way it can advance healthcare. When he researched heart data (phonocardiograms) and brain data (EEG and fMRI), he realized that if the brain and the heart are the engines of the body, then the eyes are its mirror. With this realization, he began exploring healthcare of the eyes, and discovered the world of retinal screening. In 2018, he turned to his friend Danny Margalit, former founder of one of Israel’s largest tech companies, who was immediately intrigued by the system Zack started developing. They joined forces and established what later became AEYE Health.
