Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics… Everybody seems to be talking about these topics. But what is their real impact? Especially on testing? And how do you investigate the quality of these intelligent machines? Smart software is everywhere: in Artificial Intelligence, in Robotics… and it’s changing the way we work, manufacture, communicate, entertain ourselves, manage our health, money, fitness, and more.
Smart software is embedded in so much of what we do and use in today’s digital world.
Rik Marselis believes that this presents us with a real problem in terms of quality. Why? Because the actions and responses of intelligent machines will differ over time and thus are less predictable than traditional IT-systems. And also, because the manually intensive way we’ve developed, tested and delivered software up until now, is no longer enough to meet the escalating demand for new and innovative applications, in every walk of life.
The testing profession will be impacted in two ways:
- Testing OF intelligent machines: determine if we can release with confidence
- Testing WITH intelligent machines: use new technology to enhance testing
Have you ever tested an intelligent machine before? In this workshop you will experience through discussion, quizzes and hands-on testing what is new about testing artificial intelligence and robotics. You will experience what is different when you test a physical robot. And you’ll also apply your testing skills on an intelligent agent, for example a chatbot.
In today's digital age, exploration is more important than ever and needs a structured foundation. Therefore, we’ll use paired, timeboxed, session-based exploratory testing with charters, logs and debriefing.
In this workshop with Rik, you'll find out why testing intelligent machines is different and have fun in the process! You also will gain knowledge on testing intelligent machines, AI, Machine Learning, Robotics and get practical experience with testing chatbots and robots..
This workshop is geared towards professionals with testing skills and a keen interest in testing AI, Robotics, Machine Learning, etc.
