Emotion Detection with Face API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to extract a person's emotions based on the image? Looks like the face api gives a lot of information about the person's face features( eg nose position etc..) but I did not find information about what the emotions are for the given face.

  • Hi Raghuveer,

    You can easily retrieve the relative positions of the key points of the face. Then you can apply some technique to get your "emotion". The easiest on is to define a few archetypes (let say the tradition Ekmann 6 emotions) in term of those key point position, then you do nearest neighbhoor. Not the most robust but easy to implement...

    For more you can use machine learning to get the mapping from key points to emotions.
