Machine Learning Is Changing the Future of Software Testing | Emerging Tech

The majority of software development teams believe they don’t test well. They understand that the effect of quality defects is substantial, and they invest heavily in quality assurance, but they still aren’t getting the results they want. This is not due to a lack of talent or effort — the technology supporting software testing is simply not effective. The industry has been underserved.

There can’t be a successful release until software has been properly and thoroughly tested, and testing can sometimes take significant resources considering the amount of time and human effort required to get the job done right. This gaping need is just beginning to be filled.

Data is complicated, and in order to make data make sense, someone needs to clean it, organize it, interpret it and put it to use. 

As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella once said, “Every company is a software company.” That’s in part because software is the principal tool for harnessing data and putting it to work. But the value of software has changed.

In a world of open-source software, software code is no longer a
