The facial expression recognition has been a topic of active researches given a result the proposal of several efficient algorithms; however, in most cases they remain limited to controlled conditions situations. In this study, we tackle the challenge of recognizing emotions through the facial expression into activities in-the-wild adding the accuracy rate for each expression. To this end we an algorithm that allows accurate face expression recognition in an uncontrolled environment, that means different kind of illumination, backgrounds, occlusions, face's profiles, etc. Proposed system firstly detects different profile of face (left, frontal and right), Then it uses only the frames in which the face profile is frontal, in the next step the face regions of interest (ROI) are segmented automatically to carry out the feature extraction. We use a classifier based on clustering, it has the advantage that if a new class (emotion) is added, it is not necessary to train this completely. Proposed system was evaluated using short video clips of several pictures together with description sentences describing the main activity in the video. The evaluation results show that the proposed scheme is able to recognize the face's profiles with the recognition rate to approximately 93% and principal emotions in unconstrained video sequences.
