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.
