A Survey on Databases for Facial Micro-Expression Analysis

Jingting Li, Catherine Soladie, Renaud Seguier

Abstract

Micro-expression (ME) is a brief local spontaneous facial expression and an important non-verbal clue to revealing genuine emotion. The study on automatic detection and recognition of ME has been emerging in the last decade. However, the research is restricted by the number of ME databases. In this paper, we propose a survey based on the 15 existing ME databases. Firstly, the databases are analyzed by 13 characteristics grouped into four categories (population, hardware, experimental protocol, and annotation). These characteristics provide a reference not only for choosing a database for special ME analysis purpose but also for future database construction. Concerning the ME analysis based on databases, we firstly present the emotion classification and metric frequency for ME recognition. The most frequently used databases for ME detection are then introduced. Finally, we discuss the future directions of micro-expression databases.
