Topic: The Reality of Testing in an Artificial World

Our world is changing. Artificial intelligence is being employed in just about all walks of life - from virtual assistants to self-driving cars. How does this new way of life impact software testing? What is our role...is there even one?

Of course there is! While the future of artificial intelligence is mostly unknown, remember that as testers, one of our strongest assets is being able to discover and report the unknown. Many software developers jump at the opportunity to learn and implement the new skills required for artificial intelligence. Let’s get on board and take our place in making history!

In this talk, we’ll discuss the tester’s role in an artificial world, the skills needed to test such applications, and the impact that a tester can make in this space.

Key Takeaways:
You will gain a better understanding of the testable features of AI
You will examine the skills needed to test AI
You will explore the impact that testers can have on developing AI applications
