Related to artificial intelligence and machine learning, computer vision is a science that helps computers “see” and understand the content of digital images. Computer vision and machine vision have overlap; computer vision technology refers to automated image analysis, and machine vision combines computer vision with other methods and technologies. Example applications of computer vision include:
Computer vision matters that require technical expertise typically involve intellectual property, such as patent litigation or trade secret misappropriation. Computer vision can also assist in criminal cases, as an example to identify individuals in criminal activity videos. Litigation support by a computer vision expert witness could include a review of the technology, expert report preparation, depositions, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony in a courtroom. 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 industry expert for pre-litigation consultant work.
