A facial recognition expert witness typically has a background in computer science, software engineering, artificial intelligence, face recognition, and/or pattern recognition. In addition to expertise, a facial recognition expert witness should feel comfortable explaining forensic evidence or technology to a judge and juror.
A facial recognition system makes a facial comparison of a human face in a digital image to a database of faces. The technology works by identifying and measuring facial features and biometric information from the image. Facial identification systems are used in human-computer interaction, video surveillance, social media, indexing of images, user authentication, and national security. Face recognition technology will likely soon become more ubiquitous. It could be used to track individuals’ movements out in the world, and real-time face recognition is used at sporting events and other large crowd gatherings.
Matters that require facial recognition technology expertise typically involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement or trade secret misappropriation. Face identification can also be used by law enforcement agencies to identify a suspect at a crime scene. Litigation support by a facial recognition expert witness could include an image analysis, expert opinion, depositions, and expert testimony at trial. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the leading lawyer may request a technical expert with prior expert witness experience. In addition, clients may seek a face recognition technology subject matter expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
