Monogenic Riesz wavelet representation for micro-expression recognition
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015 IEEE. A monogenic signal is a two-dimensional analytical signal that provides the local information of magnitude, phase, and orientation. While it has been applied on the field of face and expression recognition , , , there are no known usages for subtle facial micro-expressions. In this paper, we propose a feature representation method which succinctly captures these three low-level components at multiple scales. Riesz wavelet transform is employed to obtain multi-scale monogenic wavelets, which are formulated by quaternion representation. Instead of summing up the multi-scale monogenic representations, we consider all monogenic representations across multiple scales as individual features. For classification, two schemes were applied to integrate these multiple feature representations: a fusion-based method which combines the features efficiently and discriminately using the ultra-fast, optimized Multiple Kernel Learning (UFO-MKL) algorithm; and concatenation-based method where the features are combined into a single feature vector and classified by a linear SVM. Experiments carried out on a recent spontaneous micro-expression database demonstrated the capability of the proposed method in outperforming the state-of-the-art monogenic signal approach to solving the micro-expression recognition problem.
