Abstract: Human & computer interaction has been an important field of study for ages. Humans share universal and fundamental set of emotions which are exhibited through consistent facial expressions or emotion. If computer could understand the feelings of humans, it can give the proper services based on the feedback received. An algorithm that performs detection, extraction, and evaluation of these facial expressions will allow for automatic recognition of human emotion in images and videos.

In this model we give the overview of the work done in the past related to Emotion Recognition using Facial expressions along with our approach towards solving the problem. The approaches used for facial expression include classifiers like Support Vector Machine (SVM), Convolution Neural Network (CNN) are used to classify emotions based on certain regions of interest on the face like lips, lower jaw, eyebrows, cheeks and many more. Kaggle facial expression dataset with seven facial expression labels as happy, sad, surprise, fear, anger, disgust, and neutral is used in this project. The system achieved 56.77 % accuracy and 0.57 precision on testing dataset. Keywords: Facial Expression Recognition, Convolutional Neural Network, Deep Learning.
