"Personalization Using Data Analysis" will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13, presented by Alexander Iliev, assistant professor in the Department of Computing and New Media Technologies. Held in the Pinery Room of the Portage County Public Library, 1001 Main St., Stevens Point, this is the fifth talk in the eight-part College of Letters and Science 2017-2018 Community Lecture Series.

"The world's digital content and media are growing rapidly," Iliev said. "There are millions of digital assets on display through mobile devices, home entertainment systems and computers. The detection, extraction and personalization of media assets is a very dynamic field, emerging into the world of human-machine interaction."

His research interests include personalization, enhanced user experience and behavioral patterns for smart digital content ecosystems, emotion recognition in speech using machine learning, classification, data analysis, signal processing, psychoacoustics, speech and audio signals.
