If programmers have a 50/50 chance of being replaced by robots, we should think seriously on how the same might happen to testers.AmoonyFashion Women's Low-Top Solid Zipper Round-Toe High-Heels Boots, BUSXT116684AmoonyFashion Women's Frosted Low-Top Solid Zipper Kitten-Heels Boots, BUSXT114386.
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.AmoonyFashion Women's Round-Toe Low-Top High-Heels Solid Frosted Boots, BUSXT113639Naughty Monkey Womens Tejer Ankle Bootie.
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,WeiPoot Women's Round-Toe High-Heels Pu Ankle-High Solid Boots, EGHXH116579WeiPoot Women's Kitten-Heels Pu Low-Top Solid Pull-On Boots, EGHXH115184 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. STEVEN by Steve Madden Women's Catelena SandalHeels Brand shoes Women Platform High Heels Pumps Peep Toe shoesThis 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.

Your pair in the exploration and testing of systems might soon be a robot. Like a human partner, they will capture the knowledge you impart.Ahnu Women's Magnolia Ballet FlatFashion Women's Block Thick high Heels Chelsea Ankle Boots Clip Soles Office shoes Comfortable Elastic Casual Booties Over time they will learn how to support and challenge you and help you to navigate through your exploration or Surveying activity.WeiPoot Women's Kitten-Heels Solid Round-Toe Pu Zipper Boots, EGHXH108767WeiPoot Women's Pu Zipper Closed-Toe Low-Heels Ankle-High Boots, EGHXH123081 Eventually, your partner will suggest ideas that rival your own. But that is still some way off.
