Emotion Detection Using Multivariate Synchrosqueezing Transform via 2D Circumplex Model
MetadataShow full item record
Emotion detection by utilizing signal processing methods is a challenging area. An open issue in emotional modeling is to obtain an optimum feature set to use for the classification process. This study proposes an approach for emotional state classification by the investigation of EEG signals via multivariate synchrosqueezing transform (MSST). MSST is a post -processing technique to compose a localized time -frequency representation yielding multivariate syncyrosqueezing coefficients. After obtaining these coefficients from EEG signals for 18 subjects from DEAP dataset, coefficients and self assessment -mannequins (SAM) labels of those subjects are used for emotional state classification by using support vector machines (SVM) nearest neighbor, decision tree, and ensemble methods. The accuracy rate is 70.6% for high valence high arousal (HVHA), 75.4% for low valence high arousal (LVHA), 77.8% for high valence low arousal (HVLA), and 77.2% for low valence low arousal (LVLA) cases using SVM.
