Facial expression is a strong medium to express one's feelings and emotions. Accurate detection of facial expression can convey a lot of information about a person's mood. The major barriers to accurate recognition are the presence of noise, illumination variation and occlusion. This paper proposes an effective appearance-based facial feature descriptor constructed with a new local texture pattern, namely the median ternary pattern (MTP) for facial expression recognition. The proposed MTP… CONTINUE READING
