Paper Abstract

In this paper, an efficient method for human facial expression recognition is presented. Our method includes two major techniques: spatially maximum occurrence model (SMOM), which is used to describe the different facial expressions; and elastic shape-texture matching (ESTM), which is used to compute the similarity between two images. The combination of these two techniques, namely the SMOM-ESTM method, is used to classify the facial expressions. With our approach, the recognition rate based on the AR database is 94.5%.
