Paper Title - Facial Expression Recognition Using Local Facial Features
Facial expression recognition has received a lot of attention in recent years due to its importance in many
multimedia and human-computer interaction applications. One of the critical issues for a successful facial expression
recognition system is to develop a discriminative feature descriptor. In this paper, we present a texture descriptor, Local
Direction and Transition Pattern, to effectively capture the facial features. The recognition performance of the proposed
method is evaluated on the Cohn-Kanade facial expression dataset with a support vector machine classifier. Experimental
results show that the proposed method yields good recognition accuracy than other existing methods.
