Abstract: The amounts of data in digital investigations are ever increasing and new approaches are needed for finding the relevant items amongst the noise. For too long, the focus on digital investigation software has been on parsing and extracting any possible piece of data and displaying it to the user. But, with the increasing amount of data, the focus needs to be on showing only the most relevant items.
Machine learning techniques can help identify which items the user should see first and therefore save them time. This talk will outline how these techniques can be used to rank documents, executables, and other files found during a digital investigation.
