Effective Use of AI in Automated Software Testing: Practicality and Scalability Benefits

Speaker: Lionel C. Briand, professor of software engineering at The University of Ottawa, Canada and at The SnT centre for Security, Reliability, and Trust, University of Luxembourg.

Abstract: Testing is the main mechanism used in industry to assess and improve the dependability of software systems. Various techniques from Artificial Intelligence (AI), e.g., evolutionary computing, machine learning, and natural language processing, can lead, if integrated properly, to scalable and practical test automation solutions. This talk covers recent and representative examples of novel applications of AI to software test automation, done in collaboration with industry partners in the satellite and automotive domains. Lessons learned and future research directions will then be discussed.
