The use of Artificial Intelligence in digital forensics: An introduction

Article English OPEN
Mitchell, Faye

Dr Faye Mitchell argues that the use of Artificial Intelligence, which is a well-established area of modern computer science that is capable of dealing with computationally large or complex problems, could be useful for digital forensics. Digital forensics is becoming increasingly important, and often requires the intelligent analysis of large amounts of complex data. Artificial Intelligence could help to bridge the gap.
