Is it too late to discover the impact AI will have on the testing industry? 

I don't think so. Yet during TestBash Autumn, Carlos Kidman sure as heck emphasized the importance of AI in Testing and what that means for our testing roles. He shared the following tips:

  1. Focus on the deep skill of testing, not just checking. Checking will be replaced with AI.  
  2. Familiarise yourself with general GPT-powered tools. Use them to rubber duck yet don't rely on them to support your testing efforts. Find a domain-specific tool trained on smaller data sets.
  3. Consider what data you are giving to an AI app vendor. And if you don't trust them, then you're going to have to build the AI-powered app yourself.
