AI, ML, and QE: The Future of Testing

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are the latest buzz in the software testing space. Do those tools completely solve all your needs? Is there more required for you to kick-start your AI journey? Jason Jerina thinks there's an answer to bringing machine intelligence into our quality engineering activities, well before you have even started testing. While not in the marketplace yet, there may be a better solution to addressing your AI needs before testing, rather than afterward. Jason will provide a look at how test automation has evolved over time, assess the marketplace of automation tools, and paint a picture of how artificial intelligence and machine learning can be used for that next step in testing evolution.

He started as a hands-on tester back in the day, then moved into a test lead role for several years before becoming a manager. Shortly thereafter, he became a Senior Manager over Application Delivery, Development, and QA, gaining insight into the delivery pressures in an organization. Jason shortly moved into senior roles of executive officer and vice president in financial services firms like JPMorgan Chase, Options Clearing Corporation, and now New York Life. His professional passion has been around quality assurance and engineering, and improving the world of quality in software delivery. He is proud to have seen some innovation take place in the QA space in areas like financial services, where innovation may be thought of as limited.
