How AI is transforming Software Testing

“About 5 years ago everyone was talking about “Mobile First” and giving the user a mobile experience using mobile web, native and hybrid applications. Now, the new buzzword is AI. Not a day goes by without people or articles mentioning some sort of AI development happening in the industry. It is everywhere, in self-driving cars, speech recognition (people sure do love their Alexa :-)), computer vision, healthcare, fintech and now in software testing.

Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are advancing at a rapid pace. Companies like Apple, Tesla, Google, Amazon, Facebook and others have started investing more into AI to solve different technological problems in the areas of healthcare, autonomous cars, search engines, predictive modeling and much more. Applying AI is real. It’s coming fast. It’s going to affect every business, no matter how big or small. This being the case how are we as Testers going to adapt to this change and embrace AI? Also, in the era of where we want to automate everything, how is AI going to influence the way we do test design and automation?
