Dionny Santiago, Ultimate Software
Do you believe that artificial intelligence (AI) is going to transform software testing as we know it today? Or are you skeptical about the potential of using AI for testing? Thought leaders have been sharing ideas on the possibility of an AI takeover of automated testing, and discussing the need for the software quality and testing communities to be at the forefront of testing AI-based systems. Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, it is difficult to ignore some of the questions that are beginning to surface – Are manual testers and test automation engineers going to be out of a job? How will the testing roles, procedures, and tools be affected? What can testers do to prepare?
Dionny Santiago believes that an AI testing apocalypse is imminent, and that there will unavoidable shifts in the testing space. Instead of spending time focused on manually designing, crafting and evaluating tests, human efforts will be focused on interfacing, training, and collaborating with AI for testing. Being able to validate, evaluate, and improve the performance of AI will be a key aspect of measuring and reporting on test adequacy. However, before we can enter the new world of AI for testing, we will first have to survive the AI testing apocalypse. Join Dionny as he shares his vision of how the AI testing takeover will take place. Discover how to you can pivot the skills of individuals, teams, and entire organizations to not only survive but to thrive during the transition to AI.
