Face emotion recognition is a challenging problem in computer vision that has been extensively studied in recent years. The project investigates the performance of Local Binary Pattern (LBP), Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG), K- Nearest Neighbour (KNN), and Support Vector Machine (SVM) for face emotion recognition. The aim of this study is to evaluate the performance of different combinations of these techniques and to identify the most effective approach for this task. To achieve this, we first collected a dataset of facial expressions that includes seven basic emotions such as happy, sad, angry, surprise, Neutral, fear, and disgust. We then extract LBP and HOG features from the facial images and then KNN and SVM classifiers to classify the emotions. We experimented with various combinations of LBP, HOG, KNN, and SVM and evaluated the performance of each approach using metrics such as accuracy, precision, recall, and F1 score. This study demonstrates the effectiveness of combining LBP and HOG features with KNN and SVM for face emotion recognition. Our results suggest that SVM is the most effective model for this task, when it is combined with HOG features and can further improve the system39;s performance. The model can be implemented using MATLAB and GUI Interface. These findings have important implications for the development of accurate and reliable face emotion recognition systems for various applications, including human-computer interaction, gaming, and healthcare.
