Emotion and gender recognition from facial features are important properties of human empathy. Robots should also have these capabilities. For this purpose we have designed special convolutional modules that allow a model to recognize emotions and gender with a considerable lower number of parameters, enabling real-time evaluation on a constrained platform. We report accuracies of 96% in the IMDB gender dataset and 66% in the FER-2013 emotion dataset, while requiring a computation time of less than 0:008 seconds on a Core i7 CPU. All our code, demos and pre-trained architectures have been released under an open-source license in our repository at https://github.com/oarriaga/face classication.
