Smartphones, smart speakers, smart cars, smart coffee makers... the list goes on. It seems like everything around us is coming to life and getting intelligent. And though the sci-fi genre thrives on our ever-present fear of a hostile robot takeover, smart devices are anything but dystopian—they’re actually here to make our lives easier, so we can spend more time on the important stuff, instead of tedious busywork.
From the early robotics of the 1950s to the advanced, algorithm-driven machine learning of today, AI has come a long way in a short amount of time. Though AI is still relatively young, QASource has found that AI's current and potential value to automated testing is massive. With the increasing complexity of applications, the lightning-fast speed of the software development lifecycle, and the highly competitive time to market across industries, engineers will take all the help they can get, whether it be from machines or other humans.
So, why exactly is AI beneficial to automated testing services? Put simply, it allows the machine to learn and understand environments, perform “intelligent” actions, and improve itself automatically.
