Improving the performance of facial expression recognition using dynamic, subtle and regional features
Zhang, Ligang & Tjondronegoro, Dian W. (2010) Improving the performance of facial expression recognition using dynamic, subtle and regional features. Neural Information Processing. Models and Applications, pp. 582-589.
Human facial expression is a complex process characterized of dynamic, subtle and regional emotional features. State-of-the-art approaches on facial expression recognition (FER) have not fully utilized this kind of features to improve the recognition performance. This paper proposes an approach to overcome this limitation using patch-based ‘salient’ Gabor features. A set of 3D patches are extracted to represent the subtle and regional features, and then inputted into patch matching operations for capturing the dynamic features. Experimental results show a significant performance improvement of the proposed approach due to the use of the dynamic features. Performance comparison with pervious work also confirms that the proposed approach achieves the highest CRR reported to date on the JAFFE database and a top-level performance on the Cohn-Kanade (CK) database.
