Abstract : Automatic facial expression recognition on 3D face data is still a challenging problem. In this paper we propose a novel approach to perform expression recognition automatically and flexibly by combining a Bayesian Belief Net (BBN) and Statistical facial feature models (SFAM). A novel BBN is designed for the specific problem with our proposed parameter computing method. By learning global variations in face landmark configuration (morphology) and local ones in terms of texture and shape around landmarks, morphable Statistic Facial feAture Model (SFAM) allows not only to perform an automatic landmarking but also to compute the belief to feed the BBN. Tested on the public 3D face expression database BU-3DFE, our automatic approach allows to recognize expressions successfully, reaching an average recognition rate over 82%.
