Data science expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and a background in big data, machine learning, computer science, software engineering, and/or data analysis. While many experts have data science expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby a judge and jury can understand the technology and digital evidence. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may require a data scientist specialist with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Dealing with vast volumes of data, or “big data,” data science uses tools and techniques to discover patterns, derive meaningful information, and make business decisions. Data science uses machine learning algorithms to build predictive models. Often, matters requiring data science expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. Litigation support by a data science professional could include expert report preparation, expert opinion, and/or expert testimony. In addition, clients may seek a data scientist for pre-litigation consulting work.
