Abstract: This paper will explore technical and legal issues expected to be encountered in testimony of engineering, scheduling and cost expert opinions relying on the use of automated systems and artificial intelligence (AI). Specific topics include:
  • The current state of the law and practice
  • The degree of reliance on the output from automated systems and artificial intelligence.
  • The extent to which the expert must be familiar with the inner workings of the software
  • What data need to be provided in discovery
  • Does proprietary software need to be provided for the opposing experts’ use?
The paper will conclude with a set of key considerations for experts, lawyers and policy makers regarding this fast-developing area of practice.
