Event Details

Join BCS for their free event in Edinburgh on 6th March!

The stories we are fed about AI seem to fall into two categories:

1. It’s our saviour! It’s going to be wonderful!

2. It’s going to take all our jobs and destroy humanity!

The media feed us so many simplified stories designed to stimulate our imaginations with science fiction fantasies, both utopian and dystopian. The law and governance around AI is also so far behind the curve that it can confuse the issues, often propagating misconceptions, and making life harder for those wanting to use AI sensibly. The truth is far more nuanced and requires us to understand much more than just the hype.

But there is an elephant in the AI room. Conversations tend to focus on Generative-AI. Very few people talk about how to actually test AI-based systems.

Whether we like it or not, AI is here to stay, and as testers it’s our job to understand those nuances, to understand what the actual risks are, and how to mitigate them.

So … how do you test an AI system?

This talk addresses some of the risks, opportunities, and ethics involved. It also lays out a framework for testing AI-based systems, exploring the technology itself, along with the techniques, skill sets, and thinking patterns that we as testers need to adopt to remain relevant, as the fourth Industrial Revolution kicks in for real.

AI is evolving. We need to as well!
