Automate your Automation – When Will the Robots Take Over Human Sense-Making?

During the 8th edition of Test Automation Day we will discuss the question: ‘To automate or not to automate?” and all the possibilities and impossibilities of using automation when you are testing. Ilari Aegerter, managing director of House of Test will be one of the keynote speakers during Test Automation Day 2018!  In Ilari’s talk he will discuss the question what happens when your automate your automation and when robots will take over human sense-making.

Historically, Software Testing and Software Development have always made use of automation. We have a powerful tool at our hands and it helps us to accelerate and enhance our own capabilities. However, there have been some misunderstandings that lead to unreasonable expectations. Software Testing has often been partitioned in what is called “manual” and “automated” testing. This session will have a look into some of the thinking pitfalls and explore the capabilities and limitations of automation in testing.
