Imagine a world where testing is no longer necessary. Not because products are perfect, but because the level of addiction is so great that defects go unchallenged, unquestioned or unnoticed by the users. Imagine a world where Artificial Intelligence can create Automated Tests without human involvement. 2016 was the year of “Post Truth Politics”, will 2017 be the year of “Post Test Software”? The answer is almost certainly not, but that year may come, and it may not be as far away as we’d like to think.
Will Erskine is a Freelance Technologist, Performance Consultant and Fledgling Futurologist, having spent the past 15 years in the wonderful worlds of corporations and consultancies across Europe, Asia and Australia.
