New

Software continues to revolutionize the world—impacting nearly every aspect of our work, family, and personal life. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are playing key roles in this revolution through improvements in search results, recommendations, forecasts, and other predictions. AI and ML technologies are being used in platforms for digital assistants, home entertainment and automation, medical diagnosis, customer support, and autonomous vehicles. Testing practitioners are recognizing the potential for advances in AI and ML to be leveraged for automated testing—an area that still requires significant manual effort. Tariq King and Jason Arbon introduce you to the world of AI for software testing. Learn the fundamentals behind autonomous and intelligent agents, ML approaches including Bayesian networks, decision tree learning, neural networks, and reinforcement learning. Discover how to apply these techniques to common testing tasks—identifying testable features, generating test flows, and detecting erroneous states. Come and train your first artificial brain on how to test software. Take away the latest insights, perspectives, and future trends in this emerging and exciting area.
