Fully Autonomous Software Testing with GenAI

For decades, the concept of software autonomously testing itself has been a tantalizing dream. The traditional approach to software development involves extensive human effort in clicking through applications, writing API and UI test scripts, and a multitude of manual tasks before releasing a new version. However, the rise of Generative AI (GenAI) is heralding a transformative era in software testing, enabling a future where machines can undertake the bulk of these testing tasks. GenAI's capabilities extend beyond creating music, images, and even product code—it now encompasses the generation of millions of unique test cases, along with the code required to execute these tests. Welcome to the new world of "Fully Autonomous Software Testing" (F.A.S.T). This session is not just about a dream but the tangible steps being taken towards making fully autonomous, self-testing software a reality. We'll explore the current advancements and setbacks on this journey and provide insights on how to integrate these innovative techniques into your engineering and testing workflows.
