Welcome to the brave new world of Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR), where Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the new sheriff in town, ready to speed things up like a caffeine-addicted programmer during a hackathon. In this presentation, we'll embark on a whimsical journey through the realms of AI-assisted DFIR, exploring how AI is turbo-charging our forensic investigations faster than you can say "encrypted data breach." Prepare to dive into the nitty-gritty challenges that come with marrying AI with technical DFIR work--because not all relationships are perfect, especially when one partner is a machine. We'll share war stories and success tales of AI in action, from sifting through mountains of data to playing detective in complex cybercrime scenes. But it's not all byte-sized fun and games; we'll tackle the thorny issues DFIR professionals face when AI steps into the legal and insurance arenas--think of it as teaching an old dog new tricks, but the dog is a robot, and the tricks are legally admissible evidence. Lastly, we'll brainstorm how the DFIR community can further harness AI for their benefit, potentially leading to groundbreaking advances, or at the very least, fewer sleepless nights. Join us for a session that promises to be as enlightening as it is entertaining, with just a pinch of nerd humour!
