Turn That Frown Upside Down: Analysis and Detection of Facial Expressions using Geometric Morphometrics


Facial expressions are a universal form of body language. Slight changes in the mouth or eyes can indicate how a person is feeling. The goal of this project was to detect these changes using Geometric Morphometrics.

Geometric Morphometrics is the statistical analysis of the geometry of organisms. Such statistical analysis was used to determine the differences between faces making happy versus unhappy expressions.
