Testing Machines That Think – Risks and Methods for Us Mere Mortal Test Professionals
How is testing AI unique? How do our existing methods and expertise apply to this new, potentially game-changing technology? This presentation will contrast the advance of AI against the previous revolutions in software development, and aims to give a practical and understandable insight to how our roles as software testing professionals need to adjust. Based on research, and in consultation with academics and data-scientists, we will explore what is truly new and challenging, and what is scare-mongering and actually business-as-usual for testers.
Moving beyond the theory, we will demonstrate practical approaches to testing AI, some key questions to ask, and attempt to de-mystify this fashionable and slightly scary new-world!
Referencing the hype, the anti-hype and the practical application of testing techniques for AI, attendees will feel better informed as to how to approach the topic with a realistic strategy for testing AI back at the office.
