What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how can it be used in software testing? What are AI's current and soon-to-be roles in ensuring reliable validation of software quality?
On 10 May, we hosted an online webinar on AI in Software Testing. The event featured discussions on the current trends in AI applied to various software testing processes. The webinar was attended by internationally recognised software testing professionals.
CEO of Exactpro Georgia
To set the scene for the discussion, Natia Sirbiladze will introduce Exactpro and its main focus areas, as well as provide an overview of the relevance of AI in today's software testing context and introduce the webinar speakers.
ISTQB® goes AI
“Artificial Intelligence (AI) is conquering the world. We see its application in a multitude of domains and industries, including e-commerce, logistics, manufacture, medical domain, and many more. Like conventional systems – or even more so, due to their structural complexity and their non-deterministic nature – the systems with AI components need to be thoroughly tested.
ISTQB started looking into AI research in 2019. That’s when the development of a Certified Tester syllabus for the AI Testing (CT-AI) was launched. In the presentation, we will briefly describe how the syllabus was created and then focus on its content. We will look at the details of the syllabus, e.g. the Machine Learning (ML) workflow, the quality of training data, new test techniques, as well as how AI can support testing.”
Using AI for Testing: Stock Exchange Model
CEO and co-founder, Exactpro
“Exactpro is an independent software testing services provider for exchanges, post-trade platform operators, banks and financial technology vendors across 20 countries. Our tools and approaches leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to streamline protocol-based software testing to provide stakeholders with objective information about the defects present in their system faster and more effectively. Applying ML and AI to automate software testing processes provides a new level of efficiency and test coverage for numerous business cases in the industry, strengthening the operational resilience of the financial ecosystem.
In the presentation, we will go over some of the practical applications of the approaches outlined in the ISTQB CT-AI syllabus. We will discuss what AI Technologies are used in testing, how to use AI to analyse reported defects, how to perform optimisation of regression test suites, as well as examine Exactpro’s model for AI testing of an exchange.”
