We propose an Unsupervised method for Extreme States Classification (UnESC) on feature spaces of facial cues of interest. The method is built upon Active Appearance Models (AAM) face tracking and on feature extraction of Global and Local AAMs. UnESC is applied primarily on facial pose, but is shown to be extendable for the case of local models on the eyes and mouth. Given the importance of facial events in Sign Languages we apply the UnESC on videos from two sign language corpora, both American (ASL) and Greek (GSL) yielding promising qualitative and quantitative results. Apart from the detection of extreme facial states, the proposed Un-ESC also has impact for SL corpora lacking any facial annotations.
