Can I use FaceSDK for Facial Expression Detection? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am working on a project on Windows Phone 7 platform that requires to detect facial expression. I cam across faceSDK, but not sure whether it can fulfill the requirements or not.

    Can I use faceSDK for facial expressions? and If no, then what you would recommend?

  • Dhaneshwar,

    Expression detection is not an easy task. What kind of expressions do you want to detect?

    This version of SDK does not provide this feature. You may build your own detection algorithm based on this SDK (at least you know where the faces are).

    You may refer to some papers on this research. A general routine is that you need to collect a large expression dataset, label them, and then train some classifiers to tell what kind of expression it is.
