With increase in number of Internet and smartphone users, cyber crimes are equally increased. Current resources including man power are not sufficient to investigate and solve cyber crimes with the pace they are committed. Present tools and technology require human interaction at large scale, which slows down the process. There is acute need to optimize speed and performance of Digital Forensic Tools to keep pace with the reported cyber crimes. An Artificial Intelligence Based Digital Forensics Framework is proposed in this paper to overcome above issues. The framework proposed in this paper require minimum user interaction and does majority of routine operations by intelligence acquired from training. Outcome of the work is mentioned in the form of proposed framework to optimize digital forensics process.
