Date:7/29/2014

LA JOLLA, Calif., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Human Longevity, Inc. (HLI), a genomics and cell therapy-based diagnostic and therapeutic company focused on extending the healthy, high performance human life span, today announced they have hired Franz Och, Ph.D., an expert in machine learning and machine translation as the company's Chief Data Scientist. Och comes to HLI from Google where he was Distinguished Research Scientist and the Head of Google Translate. He will report directly to HLI Co-Founder and CEO, J. Craig Venter, Ph.D.

"One of the biggest challenges in medicine and science today and thus, one of HLI's biggest challenges, is how to interpret the vast amount of biological data we are generating from sequencing individual genomes," said Venter. "To make these data interpretable and clinically actionable will require new computational tools. Franz brings not only unquestionable talent in this area, but also a fresh perspective and a creative mind to tackle what has never before been attempted. We are pleased to have Franz join us in our quest to revolutionize healthcare," he concluded.

HLI is building the world's most comprehensive human genotype and phenotype database to tackle the diseases associated with aging-related human biological decline. Building on Och's expertise in language translation, and using his skills in machine learning, he will be responsible for developing new computational methods to translate the human biological information in the forms of the whole human genome, microbiome, and protein sequencing data into the language of human health and disease using human phenotype data.

Och is currently recruiting and building a team of research scientists and software engineers who will be located in Mountain View, California.
