This paper presents a new scheme to design a face detection system by using a genetic algorithm (GA). In particular, the object of this paper is to design a fast face detection system. A human being is the only animal who speaks a word and can express emotions remarkably. The language which a human being raises consists of vowels. Furthermore, a human emotion can be divided into five or more roughly. In other words, there are five emotions, "Neutral", "Happiness", "Sadness", "Anger", "Surprise". This paper pays attention to lips forms in human characteristics. Furthermore, in order to decrease the detection time, GA is used for the purpose of focusing on the lips in images. Finally, in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, we show simulation examples.
