Technology Labs podcast: Artificial Intelligence and Quality Engineering (with Johan Steyn)


New technologies are invading the world of test engineering. Johan Steyn is a lead architect in automation in South Africa and an authority on quality engineering. He joins our podcast from Johannesburg. The use of AI in test engineering and test automation is explained with the analogy of an old car with a new F1 motor: Go fast and break fast including an exponential increase in maintenance with a set of expert engineers. 🙂 Listen with us and learn about the history of CAPTCHA as well as servers that boil liquids for cooling purposes.

Why CAPTCHA’s have gotten so difficult:
