In an era where technological change is being fueled by artificial intelligence, one thing is apparent - we need software testers now more than ever before. The software testing discipline has long been undervalued, under-appreciated, and at times even misrepresented. That is, until something critical breaks or we need to restore confidence with the client. However, Tariq King believes that the outlook on the testing profession is about to change. With the rise of generative AI, systems have become more adaptive and can therefore only be adequately tested post-deployment, in production or production-like environments. Join Tariq as he kicks off 2024, not with predictions about what will happen this year, but with specific facts about the nature of artificial intelligence and why its success depends on the collective power of human insights.Register Now
