An augmented reality expert witness typically has extensive experience and knowledge in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, digital technology, computer science, and/or machine learning. Cahn Litigation Services is frequently called upon by legal professionals to locate expert witnesses that can support augmented reality matters.
Augmented reality (AR) is an experience where parts of a users’ real-world environment are combined with digital content. The digital content could be sounds, video, or GPS overlays, and respond in real time to changes in the user’s environment, typically movement. A well-known example of an augmented reality product is Pokémon GO, which combines location based services and AR technology. The future of AR’s mainstream augmented reality will include education and museum experiences.
In addition to entertainment, the augmented reality market encompass archaeology, architecture, urban design & planning, STEM education, industrial manufacturing, commerce, literature, and visual art. Of particular note in the augmented reality market is the healthcare sector, including medical training and medical imaging to assist with surgeries.
Related to augmented reality technology are virtual reality technology and mixed reality (MR). Virtual reality isolates a user from the real world, typically via a headset, and is very popular for gaming. Mixed reality combines augmented reality and virtual reality whereby digital content interacts with the users’ real world. An example of a mixed reality product is the Microsoft HoloLens smart glasses.
Augmented reality matters that require technical expertise typically involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement or trade secret misappropriation.
Litigation support by an augmented reality expert witness could include a review of the technology, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony at a trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a technical expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients often seek an augmented reality industry expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
