The Road to Level 5 Autonomous Testing;

Artificial intelligence is real and it is here and there are many testing tools that have already applied machine learning (a sub-field of AI) to improve the efficiency, robustness and flexibility of the tools. There are still questions of how far we have come in this quest for a tool that applies AI in such a way that testers could be replaced. Is this even possible? In the automobile industry there is a vision of an autonomous future where vehicles will drive themselves with no human intervention. This Road to Level 5 autonomous driving provides some clear guidelines to help companies with where they are on this path. There is much the software testing community can learn from the automobile industry while traveling down the road to an AI driven future.

In this presentation Kevin will compare and contrast AI based testing with autonomous driving including where we are on the road to level 5 autonomous testing and what it will take to get us to level 5.
