Abstract: Automatic facial emotion recognition is a challenging problem. Emotion recognition system robustness is particularly difficult to achieve as the similarity of some emotional expressions induces confusion between them. Facial representation needs feature extraction and feature selection. This paper presents a selection method incorporated into an emotion recognition system. Appearance features are firstly extracted by a Gabor filter bank and the huge feature size is reduced by a pretreatment step. Then, an iterative selection method based on Random Forest (RF) feature importance measure is applied. Emotions are finally classified by SVM. The proposed approach is evaluated on the Cohn-Kanade database with seven expressions (anger, happiness, fear, disgust, sadness, surprise and the neutral expression). Emotion recognition rate achieves 95.2% after feature selection and an improvement of 22% for sadness recognition is noticed. PCA is also used to select features and compared to RF base f eature selection method. As well, a comparison with emotion recognition methods from literature which use a feature selection step is done. (More)
