Whitepaper: Machine Intelligence Quality Characteristics


Check the original paper here.

This is the second in a series of papers focused on testing of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The paper is now available in French. It will give further insight into the test techniques and methodologies for ensuring AI quality, and it will identify the quality characteristics and their testing in this fast-changing area of IT.

In this second paper, we define software quality, introduce a generic taxonomy of quality characteristics, discuss the connections between these characteristics, and discuss future work leading to a quality-characteristics-based methodology for evaluating software architectures.

The key premise of this paper is that there is a need to extend the existing model of quality characteristics with new quality characteristics specifically for AI and robotics.
