The use of artificial intelligence in test automation is one of the latest trends dominating the quality assurance industry. In fact, in Capgemini’s survey titled World Quality Report 2020-2021, 21% of IT leaders said that they are implementing AI in some form or another in their testing methodologies, while only 2% said that AI has no part in their future planning.
The use of AI in software testing is geared towards making the software development lifecycle easier. Through the application of reasoning, problem solving and machine learning, artificial intelligence can be used to reduce the tedious and manual aspects of software development and testing, and automate the whole process.
What is automation testing?
Automation testing is the software testing process of running test cases by using automated testing tools. With this type of testing, QA teams can perform tests faster, receive more accurate results and address code defects sooner.
Thanks to artificial intelligence, impossible ideas of the past have become the reality of today. With AI, we have discovered more about the greatness of outer space as well as the micro-complexity of diseases and the possibilities for more value remain endless. In everyday life, we interact with AI when talking to our smartphones, shopping online and streaming our favorite TV shows and songs.
So, it should be no surprise that software QA is quickly shifting towards integrating AI in QA testing. In fact, the AI industry is rapidly growing year after year and predicted to be one of the biggest software testing trends of this year.
