We analyse emotions from facial expressions and other cues. We provide valence/arousal representation of emotions (continuous, 2D). The system was trained & tested with dataset of 100,000+ images, created from psychophysical validation studies achieving error: 7-8% (RMSE) and >90% accuracy. On the One-Minute Gradual (OMG) Emotion Behavior Challenge 2018, we ranked 1st for vision-only arousal/ valence prediction, and 2nd for overall valence prediction.
