Unleashing true potential of AI and Smart Automation in the world of Testing

Change is the only constant thing in this world, and more so when it comes to Technology!

The Technology advancements, Business complexity, and Industry trends have been disrupting the QA/Software testing processes and at the same time, paving way for the new era for this domain. How this new era is shaping in the industry will be discussed in this Conference with the themes viz:

(1) Role of QA in the world of AI: Testing activities can be optimized by using AI for testing. But Artificial Intelligence itself must be tested too, to ensure that users can rely on the decisions taken by AI. As a part of this theme, we will cover AI aspects that are relevant in today’s world of digital assurance and testing, such as Machine Learning, Machine Intelligence, Robotic Process Automation and Cognitive IT etc.

(2) Smart Automation: Test automation is no longer limited to functional/UI automation and newer approaches to automation are driving increased efficiencies in the overall software process. Aligning automation to DevOps model has also evolved in recent times. As part of this theme, we will cover topics such as DevOps oriented automation, Unleashing the true potential of BDD, Increasing automation for legacy applications etc.
