Facial expressions are necessary in human communication and understanding emotions. First and foremost, identifying emotions is a critical factor for many businesses to comprehend how their customers are responding to the things they have introduced. It can also be utilized to find out if the amenities provided to their staff are meeting their needs. Additionally, it has a plethora of other applications, such as utilizing a camera to identify someone’s attitude without having to approach them. Additionally, with little adjustments, the same technique may be used to a variety of different sectors, including face detection, attendance tracking, mask detection, and many more. Detecting facial expressions automatically has significant uses in different platforms, like interaction between human and machines, emotion analysis, or mental health diagnostics. This research focuses on developing a robust and efficient system for facial expression detection using deep learning techniques. The experimental findings show how well the suggested method works to reliably identify and categorize expressions. The system achieves performance on benchmark datasets, showcasing its potential for real-world applications. Additionally, we compare our results with those of conventional machine learning approaches, emphasizing the superior performance of deep learning methods in tasks involving facial emotion identification. This work advances the field of computer vision by offering a sophisticated method for automatic face emotion recognition. The accuracy, resilience, and real time capabilities of the built system make it a useful tool for a variety of applications, such as virtual reality, gaming, healthcare, and customer experience analysis. Facial emotion analysis is effectively employed in surveillance films, expression analysis, gesture recognition, computer games, smart homes, depression treatment, patient monitoring, anxiety, lying detection, psychoanalysis, paralinguistic communication, operator tiredness detection, and robotics.

Keywords: Facial emotion detection, convolutional neural network (CNN), image edge computing, real-time expression detection
