Human emotion is very difficult to determine just by looking at the face and also the behavior of a person. This research was conducted to detect or identify human emotion via the study of brain waves. In addition, the research aims to develop computer software that can detect human emotions quickly and easily. This study aims at EEG signals of relationship and human emotions. The main objective of this recognition is to develop "mind-implementation of Robots". While the research methodology is divided into four; (i) both visibility and EEG data were used to extract the date at the same time from the respondent, (ii) the process of complete data record includes the capture of images using the camera and EEG, (iii) pre-processing, classification and feature extraction is done at the same time, (iv) the features extracted is classified using artificial intelligence techniques to emotional faces. Researchers expect the following results; (i) studies brain waves for the purpose of emotions, (ii) the study of human emotion with facial emotions and to relate the brain waves, (iii). In conclusion, this study is very useful for doctors in hospitals and police departments for criminal investigation. As a result of this study, it also helps to develop a software package.
