Power to the Testers – How AI & ML Enables QA to Build Efficient DevOps Cycles and Propel Organizations into the Next Normal

Presented by: 

AI isn’t the future of testing; it’s the present-day reality, with ever-increasing significance as organizations are propelling into the next normal. Intelligent technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and analytics are becoming important building blocks of intelligent platform solutions for software companies and IT organizations in 2021. The aim of such intelligent platforms is to provide people with sustainable support so that processes can be optimized and maintenance costs can be minimized. Especially in the field of test automation, AI solutions bring a significant competitive advantage, enabling human testers to focus on the quality and design of the applications and processes of the future.

In this session, we will discuss how AI-driven testing addresses some of today's top test automation challenges. We’ll explore what leaders and organizations need to know when leveraging AI based tools and particularly what’s required to move beyond successful initial pilots to capturing the true value of AI at scale.
