Facial expression recognition using Hough forest

Chi-Ting Hsu, Shih-Chung Hsu, Chung-Lin Huang
2013 2013 Asia-Pacific Signal and Information Processing Association Annual Summit and Conference  
Finally, classification and localization of the center of the facial expression in the video sequences are performed by using a Hough forest.  ...  Facial expressions analysis encounters two major problems: non-rigid morphing (human facial expression are non-rigid and shape deformation) and person-specific appearance (the facial action features are  ...  We capture the facial images through the camera, analyze the non-rigid morphing facial expressions, and eliminate the person-specific effects through patch features extracted from facial motion.  ...

Temporal Segmentation of Facial Behavior

Fernando De la Torre, Joan Campoy, Zara Ambadar, Jeffrey F. Cohn
2007 2007 IEEE 11th International Conference on Computer Vision  
These include non-frontal pose, moderate to large out-of-plane head motion, large variability in the temporal scale of facial gestures, and the exponential nature of possible facial action combinations  ...  Temporal segmentation of facial gestures in spontaneous facial behavior recorded in real-world settings is an important, unsolved, and relatively unexplored problem in facial image analysis.  ...  We use person-specific Active Appearance Models [28, 9] to track the non-rigid/rigid motion in the sequence (see fig. 6 ).  ...

Capturing subtle facial motions in 3D face tracking

2003 Proceedings Ninth IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision  
We propose a new ratio-image based appearance feature, which is independent of a person's face albedo. This feature is used to track face appearance variations based on exemplars.  ...  Facial motions produce not only facial feature points motions, but also subtle appearance changes such as wrinkles and shading changes.  ...  We also thank Zicheng Liu, Zhengyou Zhang, and anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.  ...
