Add to calendar

The approaches to testing are continuously evolving as we try to keep up with the application needs of today’s users. Our industry is facing a new paradigm where AI is helping achieve scale, coverage, and business impact for many organizations that have been primarily focused on finding defects and refactoring test cases. Are your teams struggling to figure out how to leverage AI to improve their testing? To successfully do this, you must first understand one of AI’s underpinning foundations: data mining. Lorna Smyth will explain the fundamentals of data mining and how it is the base for developing smart tests that include predictive bug hunting and self-healing. You'll leave with an understanding of how teams can implement efficiencies in their testing and move to smart tests.
