1:45 PM – 2:30 PM ET Saket Godase - Machines Testing Machines: Automation testing and A.I.
By 2045, we expect A.I. to surpass human intelligence. One can only imagine – if that – the vast areas of application where A.I. will fully automate tasks, and software testing is no exception. This presentation examines the potential for applying artificial intelligence (A.I.) techniques to software automation testing projects. It also explores how the current automation testing workforce can acclimatize themselves beforehand, to hit the ground running.
How can A.I. truly address use cases in software testing? That is a billion-dollar question (quite literally for organizations working on these products). This presentation will first explore the foundational tenets of A.I. We will then walk-through areas of application within the software testing space, primarily automation testing. In the next couple of sections, we will highlight some use cases within automation testing and discuss synergies between different teams. We will also explore a couple of A.I. based automation testing tools currently available in the market, as well as methodologies to measure effectiveness of this transformation via KPIs. The last part of the presentation will discuss how the current automation testing workforce can get a first movers’ advantage and embrace the future.

2:45 PM – 3:30 PM ET Chris Trimper - AI Testing Skeptic to Convert
Join me on my and my team's journey to adopting AI practices and technologies in testing. I started off as a skeptic being fearful of 'something I didn't code', to a realization of the benefits and methods to adopt AI within our testing. We will mainly investigate the continual evolution in test case authoring / automating and ways in which AI can (and will) aid us as testers. I have learned that there can indeed be peaceful coexistence of AI and me in the testing realm.
