On 5 October, Iosif Itkin, CEO and co-Founder of Exactpro, gave a talk titled “Software Testing and Responsibility: Humans and AI in a Zero Outage Environment” at the Zero Outage Industry Standard webinar. Iosif continued the discussion on ZOIS's competency model started by Klaus Reile and Michael Mayr in the ‘People Matter Most’ webinar. His unique perspective, however, focused on the testing aspect of software delivery, exploring its critical role in achieving Zero Outage environments.
In his presentation, Iosif delved into the nature of collaboration between human expertise and AI, emphasising how this symbiosis elevates the testing process. He also discussed how responsible AI usage can impact software reliability and help foster a culture of accountability.
