Artificial Intelligence gave a chance to machine learning where people say the machine will do things without the need for programs and that complicates the role of both developers and testers. Are these technologies/changes a real threat or just a passing clouds?. What is that you want to hear from panel experts who have 150+ years of experience put together?.
