He is the co-founder of the Artificial Intelligence for Software Testing Association.

Tariq’s previous talk on “AI Driven” testing;

Software vendors and practitioners are using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to create a new wave of test automation tools.  Such tools leverage autonomous and intelligent agents to mimic how human testers observe, explore, model, reason and learn about a software product.  But how do these testing robots really work? Is this technology any good? Can we really trust it to test software? And will it transform the field of software testing?

Join Tariq King at #Q4Q2019 as he introduces you to the world of AI-driven test automation and discuss its benefits, challenges and other limitations. You will learn how test bots use AI/ML technologies to mimic human testing activities such as discovering the application, generating test inputs, and verifying expectations. You will also see the test bots in action through a demonstration of open-source AI-driven test automation prototypes.
