Who tests the Robot?

Recently I have been set the challenge of trying to work out how to test robots and how to test (an) artificial intelligence. You’ll be pleased to know there are no spoilers in this as, well quite frankly, it remains a work in progress. Under duress, I would say my current thinking focuses on how predictable a robot should be, and how the concept of ‘expected results’ falls apart with artificial intelligence.

Testing AI solutions

Artificial Intelligence (AI) in one guise or another is beginning to permeate our everyday activities.  Whether it’s a visit to the doctor’s office to get an initial diagnosis of eye problems or trying to find a new job, AI is either already making decisions on your behalf or will be in the not too distant future.

To Test is Human

We all know the highly advanced algorithm Google employs to test the millions of pieces of content pieces submitted on its platform every day. But, recently an article mentioned that Google is now planning to hire human readers in the backend to ensure the quality of the content. This strengthened my belief in human testers, who still have an important place in the testing value chain, in spite of growing concerns that automation will take over the role of human testers.
