What is Machine Learning & Will it Take Over Testing?
Machine Learning is all the rage. Companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft are investing extreme sums of money into their ML budgets. But what is it, and more importantly, how will it affect me, as a tester?
Last year, I was at a testing conference where a group of 5 executives decreed adamantly that ML would replace testers within the next few years. Anytime 5 executives agree on anything I question it. So I wanted to learn if they were right.
Over the last few months, I’ve gotten my feet wet with ML. I’ve talked with industry experts in the field and testers with expertise in ML. I wanted to know what they had to say about this decree. I wanted to know for myself, “is testing in danger of being automated by ML?”
Join me at TISQA to talk about what I’ve found in my research and to get your feet wet with Machine Learning!
