In this paper, we propose a novel method for facial expression recognition. The facial expression is extracted from human faces by an expression classifier that is learned from boosting Haar feature based look-up-table type weak classifiers. The expression recognition system consists of three modules, face detection, facial feature landmark extraction and facial expression recognition. The implemented system can automatically recognize seven expressions in real time that include anger, disgust, fear, happiness, neutral, sadness and surprise. Experimental results are reported to show its potential applications in human computer interaction.
