Abstract: This paper describes an efficient attempt to build a three-layer emotion perception model consisting of acoustic features, semantic primitives, and emotion dimensions with a focus on acoustic feature subset selection. Previous studies using this model focused on the most relevant acoustic features using a Pearson correlation coefficient-based filter approach, which could only capture the relation limited to linear function well. However, perception of human emotion is vague; linear correlation measures could not capture the relations that are not linear in nature. In this study, we introduce a novel feature selection algorithm based on the maximal information coefficient and predominant correlation, which can identify relevant features between paired variables in spite of linear or nonlinear relations and remove redundancies among the relevant features. Experimental results on the Berlin Emo-DB and Chinese Emotional Speech Corpus demonstrated that the proposed algorithm achieves an improvement to estimation of emotion dimensions, resulting in a smaller mean absolute error and higher correlation coefficient between estimations and human evaluations, compared with the referred Pearson correlation coefficient-based method, and the commonly used wrapper-based method of sequential floating forward selection.
