We have been developing a method for analyzing the facial expressions of a person using a video phone system (Skype) to talk to another person. The video is recorded and analyzed by image processing software (OpenCV) and the newly proposed feature vector of facial expression. The newly proposed facial expression intensity can be used to analyze a change of facial expression. The judgment of speaking is performed in our study. The experimental results show the usefulness of the proposed method.
