Face expression recognition using artificial neural network (ANN) / Mazuraini Ghani

Ghani, Mazuraini (2005) Face expression recognition using artificial neural network (ANN) / Mazuraini Ghani. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


Over a few decades, many computer vision systems haven been developed. One of the applications related to computer vision is face recognition and was being interested by many researches. This project is all about implementing the back-propagation neural network algorithm in classification of face expression. This project has 3 objectives. The first objective is to collect and digitized images with different expressions which is neutral, happy and angry. The second is to design and develop a prototype for classifying human emotions by face expression recognition of a given image, using back propagation neural network. The last is to study and experiment the suitable edge detection techniques for binary facial image. There are two important phases that were focused in developing this project. The phases are pre-processmg phase and neural network design phase. In preprocessing phase, s detail studies and intensive experiments were conducted to obtain a suitable method of segmentation. Meanwhile, in the neural network design and implementation phase, intensive experiments have been conducted to obtained appropriate design and parameter value of neural network. In this project, the suitable method of segmentation is local adaptive threshold. However, the performances of neural network in learning and classification task should be enhanced by redesigning and conducting experiment on other learning algorithm than back-propagation.
