If programmers have a 50/50 chance of being replaced by robots, we should think seriously on how the same might happen to testers.Rainbow Sandals High-Heeled shoes - Rainbow 2018 New, 11.3cm Stiletto Heel Sandals Women's Pointed Buckle with Fine Baotou Empty shoes (color White, Size 39)Wedge Sandals Summer Women's shoes Fashionable High Heels Sexy High Heel Sandals Open Toe High Heels 12cm High (color Pink, Size 36 US6).
Machine Learning in testing is an intriguing prospect but not imminent. However, the next generation of testing tools will look a lot different from the ones we use today.
For the past thirty years or so we have placed emphasis on test automation and checking. In the New Model for Testing, I call this 'Applying'. We have paid much less attention to the other nine - yes, nine - test activities. As a consequence, we have simple robots to run tests, but nothing much to help us to create good tests for those robots to run.
In this paper, I am attempting to identify the capabilities of the tools we need in the future.Women's Ankle Boots, Autumn Winter Fashion Pointed Rough High Heels British Zipper Leather Martin Boots Novelty shoes (color C, Size 39)GouuoHi Womens Slippers Lady Cotton Slippers Slip Home Indoor Slippers Suede Solid color Casual Boew Decoration Leisure Super Soft Plush Slippers shoes.
The tools we use in testing today are limited by the approaches and processes we employ. Traditional testing is document-centric and aims to reuse plans as records of tester activity. That approach and many of our tools are stuck in the past. Bureaucratic test management tools have been one automation pillar (or millstone). The other pillar – test automation tools – derive from an obsession with the mechanical,shoesmaker's heart Simple Fashion Casual shoes All-Match shoes Black Flat shoesROF Women's Military Combat colord Lace Up Mid Calf Boots With Zipper Closure purely technical execution activity and is bounded by an assertion that many vendors still promote – that testing is just bashing keys or touchscreens which tools can do just as well.
The pressure to modernise our approaches, to speed up testing and reduce the cost and dependency on less-skilled labour means we need some new ideas. I have suggested a refined approach using a Surveying metaphor. Cambridge Select Women's Classic Two-Strap Slingback Chunky Platform Wedge SandalMadrid Birko-Flor Tango Red PatentThis metaphor enables us to think differently on how we use tools to support knowledge acquisition.
The Survey metaphor requires new collaborative tools that can capture information as it is gathered with little distraction or friction. But they can also prompt the user to ask questions, to document their thoughts, concerns, observations and ideas for tests.
