Overview of the event

We recently wrapped up 2019 as the year of digital quality. We talked about how digital transformation is going to bring even more drastic shifts in how we do software delivery. And how your organization needs to brace up to bring agile models to work in order to release higher quality software faster through automated testing.

A key trend that will sweep over to bring economies of scale, speed and intelligence will be automated testing followed by AI. We've seen a massive movement from manual to automation in the last couple of years, as manual could not handle this scale of change. Manual testing matrices are too big to approximate manually, take a long time, and are very complex to handle for applications like Uber, Snapchat, and Twitter that are scaling at the speed of light.

Manual testing might not be able to meet the demand of a plethora of web browsers, devices, operating systems, screen resolutions, and responsive designs. And to deliver quality at the speed of digital, there will be a need to bring in the right automated testing initiatives. But automation is vast and there are several nuances to it. Which nuances will be more pronounced in 2020?

Agile Testing and Test Automation Summit will help you get industry best practices in Test Automation and the latest tools and techniques to achieve it.

Agile Testing and Test Automation Summit, Pune
X Topic Abstract

Standard testing tools provides status by defect categories & severity; progress of testing based on number of test cases etc. There is a wealth of information in defect descriptions, requirement descriptions, log files etc that remain unharnessed. LTI has developed an NLP engine that examines unstructured & verbose data from such sources and provides insight into application hotspots, elements that change more than others. This helps testers and developers understand where future defects are likely to arise

X Topic Abstract

EIon Musk, one of the renowned innovator and entrepreneur, had announced one of the ambitious AI project “OpenAI”. With AI BOTs at heart, objective of project was to defeat professional gamers but it had rather short life with professional gamers found better of AI system quickly. This project is not alone, Microsoft’s Tay – AI tweet bot had posted indecent tweets and forced Microsoft to suspend within a day itself. Similarly, many of the prestigious company like Facebook, Apple had bad press for their AI invention. So is it problem with AI? Not really. There are many successful example of AI like face recognition by Facebook or product recommendation engine from Amazon. Difference is how you ensure the quality of AI product. The biggest hurdle to have AI successful is to build trust in quality of AI prediction or action. What AI needs hence is quality engineering, building quality within system rather than assuring the same. Potential reasons behind failure of above systems are either incorrect or incomplete input, not so right model or future scenario inclusion. Solution hence will include –

• Assurance of data quality (validating input) to have base of AI product error free
• including check of data bias, outlier, variance in data
• Assuring model (blackbox testing of final product)
• including key KPI and analysis of prediction quality
• Explaining Model behavior
• Focusing on “Why” rather than just “what” model predicts to ensure structural issue identified before releasing the product Also, AI being more close to domain, need solution less technical but impactful.

All above solution will hence be script less and interactive solution. This solution has not only reduce to distance between AI system and QA person but also increasing quality of product well before making it open for wider audience.

X Topic Abstract

To be successful today, a tester has to not only be great at testing, but also be an engineer of the agile testing processes. We all know 'defects are less costly when caught early'. This realization has given a birth of this concept called 'Shift left'. In the world with less time to delivery, teams are being asked to move faster with more expectations to improve the quality of each release. It is not only to move testing activities in the earlier stage of SDLC but also to test continuously again and again. With increasing adoption of Agile, BDD, TDD and DevOps (CI/CD), QA enterprises are rapidly moving towards Shift left testing. ‘Shift Left’ approach has brought a huge transformation for the Testing fraternity with a journey of ‘Early Defect Detection to Defect Prevention’ moving away from the sole testing focus of 'Defect Detection'. During this session we will try to understand this concept with examples… What it really means to Shift Left, How does Shift Left influence software development, How the testing processes and tester's roles are changing, What should testers do differently in Shift Left.
Test earlier! Test often... Test Left!!!
