Facial Expression Recognition is an important undertaking for the machinery to recognize different expressive alterations in individual. Emotions have a strong relationship with our behavior. Human emotions are discrete reactions to inside or outside occasions which have some importance meaning. Involuntary sentiment detection is a process to understand the individual’s expressive state to identify his intensions from facial expression which is also a noteworthy piece of non-verbal correspondence. In this paper we propose a Framework that combines discriminative features discovered using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) to enhance the performance and accuracy of Facial Expression Recognition. For this we have implemented Inception V3 pre-trained architecture of CNN and then applying concatenation of intermediate layer with final layer which is further passing through fully connected layer to perform classification. We have used JAFFE (Japanese Female Facial Expression) Dataset for this purpose and Experimental results show that our proposed method shows better performance and improve the recognition accuracy.
