Talk: SW Testing: Can AI save us?
Nothing has happened in testing for a long time. While products are getting ever more complex and the pressure to ship grows every day, we are still hand-crafting test cases and spending immense manual efforts, especially when testing GUIs and other complex aspects of the system.
There have been attempts to intelligently automate software testing before, for example, Model-Based Testing (which has yet to become widespread). While powerful, these testing techniques are extremely hard to apply to the type of complex behavior they are most needed for.
In the past decade, however, there has been a massive Artifical Intelligence renaissance, and it's coming to the world of testing, too! We have been studying the trends for a while and will share with you what has been done in this field and what we can expect in the future. Can AI save us?
