Discriminative Local Sparse Representations for Robust Face Recognition
The first step in facial expression analysis is to detect the face in the given image or video sequence. Locating the face within an image is termed as face detection or face localization whereas locating the face and tracking it across the different frames of a video sequence is termed as face tracking.
