Facial Expressions, Local Binary Pattern (LBP), Histogram.
Facial Expression Recognition is one of the exciting and challenging field; it has important applications in many areas such as data driven animation, human computer interaction and robotics. Extracting effective features from the human face is an important step for successful facial expression recognition. In this paper we have evaluated Local Binary Patterns of some important parts of human face, for person independent as well as person dependent facial expression recognition. Extensive experiments on JAFFE database are conducted. The experiment results show that person dependent method is highly accurate and outperform many existing methods.
