Abstract

The Advancements in micro expression recognition techniques are accelerating at an exceptional rate in recent years. Envisaging a real environment, the recordings captured in our everyday life are prime sources for many studies, but these data often suffer from poor quality. Consequently, this has opened up a new research direction involving low resolution micro expression images. Identifying a particular class of micro expression among several classes is extremely challenging due to less distinct inter-class discriminative features. Low resolution of such images further diminishes the discriminative power of micro facial features. Undoubtedly, this increases the recognition challenge by twofold. To address the issue of low-resolution for facial micro expression, this work proposes a novel approach that employs a super resolution technique using Generative Adversarial Network and its variant. Additionally, Local Binary Pattern & Local phase quantization on three orthogonal planes are used for extracting facial micro features. The overall performance is evaluated based on recognition accuracy obtained using a support vector machine. Also, image quality metrics are used for evaluating reconstruction performance. Low resolution images simulated from the SMIC-HS dataset are used for testing the proposed approach and experimental results demonstrate its usefulness.
