Biometrics expert witness candidates typically have expertise in information security, biometrics, computer engineering, and/or computer science. It can be helpful for a biometrics expert to have a background in forensic science also. It is essential that an expert witness possess the ability to provide testimony in a manner whereby a jury and judge can understand scientific evidence as well as forensic evidence. An expert witness must also be prepared to withstand the scrutiny of a cross-examination. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement.
Biometrics refers to human body measurements and calculations. Biometric authentication is often used for identification and access control. Examples of biometric features include fingerprint identification, face recognition, DNA, palmprints, and iris recognition. Representative litigation matters requiring biometrics expert witness work involve issues pertaining to patent infringement, trade secret disputes, identity theft and fraud. Expert witness services could include a review of the evidence and technology, a crime scene investigation, expert report preparation, depositions, and/or courtroom testimony. In addition, the lead counsel may seek a biometrics specialist, forensic scientist, or security expert for pre-litigation consulting work. Cahn Litigation Services has many years of experience in identifying biometrics expert witnesses. History has shown that the firm has the experience required to turn an expert witness search around quickly. Example cases that Cahn Litigation Services has sourced biometrics experts for have involved:

This expert holds a Ph.D. This expert's Doctoral thesis was on Learning Control and Neural Network Learning. This expert has conducted research and development in the fields of Biometrics, Optimization, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning, and Internet-Commerce. This expert's work has included research and development, leading to the production of a series of Speaker Recognition, Speech Recognition, Face Recognition, and Signature Recognition software engines. This expert is the author of a textbook on speaker recognition.
This expert developed a procedure for the conversion of classically written articles into articles in Unicode-16. This included working with the editors of an encyclopedia, in detail, to design a character set based on Unicode to be able to handle hundreds of languages (modern and archaic). In addition, automation software was developed for the conversion of articles, while indexing and cross-referencing then automatically. This expert created search mechanisms for searching the articles in any of the many nonstandard transcription techniques used by the readers to transcribe the relevant languages. The mapping, search, and multiple transcription style mapping are quite complex. The indexing included automatic indexing plus keyword references created manually by editors and incorporated into the search and indexing.
