Towards Reading Micro-expressions in the Real World

Project description

Strategic research project of the University of Oulu
Focus institute: Infotech Oulu
Faculty: Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE)


This project aims to detect and recognize micro-expressions from both dynamic 2D and 3D analysis in order to develop camera-based methods and technologies for reading micro-expressions in real-world applications. The associations among micro-expressions and macro-expressions will be investigated for better understanding the emotions and improve the reliability for the multimodal system. As a case study, the application for learning assessment and support is planned to be explored with Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit (LET).
