Jason Arbon Will AI and Machine Learning Take Over Software Testing?: An Interview with Jason Arbon

Jason Arbon, CEO and founder of test.ai, discusses his goal to test all the world’s apps. Jason also provides insight on a frequent question he faces: When will AI replace my job? He believes that AI and machine learning have already started taking over some aspects of software testing, and that this transition will keep accelerating.

Person comparing two apples An Automated Approach to Regression Testing

Testing every single thing isn't feasible, so regression testing should be holistic in verification while focused in scope. A good goal is to ensure no regression issue is introduced into a critical business flow. This endeavor can benefit from automation. An automated testing approach specific to reducing regression issues can go a long way toward building a good client relationship and high brand value.

"Wrong Way" road sign To Get Quality Software, Let Them Fail

As an advocate for quality, you look at the product, take into account time, budget, and other business constraints, and recommend fixes to ship a product with the best possible quality. ... And the businesspeople in production don’t want to fix it. How can you communicate bugs and risk to people who don't want to listen? Instead of getting frustrated, you need to frame issues in a meaningful way—and, if you have to, let people fail.

Privacy in a Time of Rich Telemetry
Slideshow

Most modern testing, especially in a DevOps model, uses a lot of telemetry to evaluate and monitor quality of experience for apps and services. In this interconnected world, there is power and risk in data. Ken Johnston will share his personal experiences dealing with US and European Union privacy regulations and the methods he and his team have implemented to mitigate the potential of significant penalties for the misuse of data. He will cover privacy-preserving techniques such as differential privacy and private enclave, what constitutes primary versus secondary uses of data, and how you should handle personally identifiable information (PII). You'll leave with a better understanding of how to keep data private and secured, as well as how to keep your team adhering to privacy best practices and regulations.

Defining KPIs and Metrics...

I'm currently building out a Test PMO for an insurance company. We have a long term, fixed-price contract with a vendor using a waterfall model.  I'm currently working on KPIs and metrics which I will use to tell the testing story, which means both technical and business comsumers will need to find value in them. I'm conducting targeted interviews atm  but am interested in hearing if any of you have had experience in this arena.  

What kinds KPIs / metrics have you found valuable?

What kinds of chatring / mapping have you found to be confusing?

What considerations would you want to address?

Any additional comments?

Testing has changed a lot in the last ten years. Although some traditional techniques are still useful, many testing activities are being done by developers, users, and other nonprofessional testers.
