A Beginner's Guide to AI-Driven Testing

Workshop by Tariq King

06. 10. 2021 from 13:00 to 17:00 CET

About this workshop

AI has been rapidly changing the way we approach software testing. Traditional test automation is time-consuming to create and breaks down easily in the presence of change. Thankfully, AI is helping testing teams create less procedural, more resilient tests that can self-heal in the presence of modern, rapidly changing, highly dynamic production systems. This sounds great, but you may be asking yourself: How do I get started? What additional skills do I need to learn? What tools are available for me to start using, right now? Join us as we break down different AI techniques and apply them to different testing problems. Discover freely available AI-driven test automation tooling that will help you start building AI-first test automation today without writing a single line of code. Want to tackle the hardest of challenges, and want to learn how to generate new test cases? We will also cover open source tools that can help you build your neural networks for tackling tough testing problems. Let's build and execute real AI-first tests. No prior programming or AI/ML experience is needed!
