Improving Face Analysis Using Expression Dynamics

Hamdi Dibeklioğlu
Postdoctral Researcher, Delft University of Technology

Most of the approaches in face analysis rely solely on static appearance. However, temporal analysis of expressions reveals interesting patterns. In this talk, I will describe automatic spontaneity detection for enjoyment smiles using temporal dynamics of different facial regions. We have recorded spontaneous and posed enjoyment smiles of hundreds of visitors to the NEMO Science Centre in Amsterdam, thus creating the most comprehensive smile database ever: the UvA-NEMO Smile Database ( ). Our findings on this publicly available database show that facial dynamics go beyond expression analysis. I will discuss how we can use expression dynamics to improve age estimation and kinship detection.
