Talk Description

Software vendors and practitioners are using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to create a new wave of test automation tools. Such tools leverage autonomous and intelligent agents to explore, model, reason and learn about a software product. But how do these testing robots really work? Is this technology any good? And can we really trust it to validate software? Tariq King will introduce you to the world of AI-driven test automation and discuss its benefits, challenges and other limitations. Learn how test bots use AI/ML technologies to mimic human testing activities such as discovering the application, generating test inputs, and verifying expectations. Come and experience the test bots in action through a demonstration of open-source AI-driven test automation prototypes.
