Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an important and well established area of modern computer science that can often provide a means of tackling computationally large or complex problems in a realistic time-frame. Digital forensics is an area that is becoming increasingly important in computing and often requires the intelligent analysis of large amounts of complex data. It would therefore seem that AI is an ideal approach to deal with many of the problems that currently exist in digital forensics. The purpose of this paper is to give a high level introduction to AI as it might be used in digital forensics.
