Data Quality: COVID Contact Tracing - Utilizing AI for Good

In the digital reality, technology is no longer just the enabler and it is what it is to be human, the ability to continuously learn and evolve. The approaches and techniques that worked yesterday, may no longer be the optimum approach for the future. Historically, human processes have been based on linear, sequential activities highly suitable to be replaced by digital engineering practices such as Intelligent Process Automation (IPA), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL). However, robots are no longer mimicking human behaviors, but far surpassing our greatest expectations, traditional hardware and software are now becoming independent self-aware intelligent entities as they continue to journey towards the Singularity. Organizations are investing in adopting cognitive services, these intelligent algorithms to understand and interpret your business needs through natural languages are help drive omni-channel delivery that are extremely responsive to customer sentiment. Blurring the boundaries with Intelligent Operations (AI) and Enterprise A.I adoption becoming ever more prevalent and resilient in the face of unpredictable failure modes, whilst still being able to process huge amounts of unstructured data, embarking onto this third wave of artificial intelligence and the art of abstract thinking.

Testing with AI Panel (Panelist)

For most of us, the evolution of IT started with the invention of the PC and internet. The next major innovation came with the advent of smartphones. Today we are engulfed with IoT and AI solutions everywhere you turn. AI and ML technologies are being used in platforms for digital assistants, home entertainment, medical diagnosis, customer support, and autonomous vehicles. Testers are recognizing the potential for advances in AI and ML to be leveraged for automated testing. But where do we get started? In some cases the term AI is overused - so what is defined as true AI vs. "something else"? Join us for this 90-minute interactive panel to explore these questions and more.

Takeaways:

  • Learn how AI is currently being leveraged for testing today

  • Where to get started with using AI in your testing organization

  • What are the challenges and limitations of testing with AI?

  • How will AI impact the entire IT industry?
