– Test Conference presented by Test Scouts –

🎤 Talk: “AI-Augmented Testing: How Generative AI and Prompt Engineering Turn Testers into Superheroes, Not Replace Them”

Envision a testing realm infused with AI-driven superpowers, where a reliable AI companion revolutionizes the way, we approach testing. This companion doesn’t just assist; it transforms the adventure of creating test cases that span the full spectrum of possibilities and pinpointing bugs in the most unexpected places. This is the essence of AI-augmented testing, a paradigm where AI elevates testers to maestros, orchestrating a symphony of enhanced augmented test intelligence. By turbocharging the testing process to be quicker, smarter, and more efficient, this approach doesn’t merely impart insights but equips you with actionable strategies to bring these innovative concepts to life, making your work not only more productive but also genuinely enjoyable and engaging.

But this session goes beyond merely discussing the technological underpinnings (e.g., GNN, RAG, RGA, NLU). It’s a rallying cry for test professionals everywhere to embrace an era where their skills are amplified to superhero proportions. Through a blend of real-world anecdotes and hands-on demonstrations, participants will gain firsthand experience in leveraging generative AI for crafting exhaustive manual test cases, automating intricate testing scenarios, and achieving bug detection with unprecedented accuracy. We’ll delve deep into the art of prompt engineering and fine-tuning, demonstrating how to design precise prompts that guide Generative AI in executing highly specialized testing tasks, thus opening new horizons in test engineering prowess.

Get ready to be motivated, to absorb knowledge, and to witness the future of testing—a future where you’re not merely adapting but thriving, propelled by the avant-garde wave of AI-Augmented Testing. This session is your gateway to joining an elite community at the forefront of the GAI revolution, setting new standards for what it means to be a tester in the digital age. Embark on this voyage to the cutting edge of testing and seize the opportunity to define the next era of test assurance!


🛠️ Workshop: “AI-Augmented Testing: A Hands-On Workshop on Generative AI, Prompt Engineering Tuning, and Beyond RAG”

This immersive workshop is designed for QA professionals, testers, and developers who are eager to leverage the cutting-edge capabilities of AI to enhance their testing strategies, automate processes, and uncover bugs with unparalleled accuracy. By blending theoretical knowledge with practical exercises, participants will gain firsthand experience in harnessing the power of AI-Augmented Testing to transform their approach to testing, making it more efficient, effective, and innovative.  Throughout the workshop, attendees will explore the core concepts of generative AI and its application in testing, including how to generate comprehensive test cases that cover every conceivable scenario and how to use AI to identify bugs in the most unexpected places. The workshop will also delve into the nuanced art of prompt engineering tuning, teaching participants how to craft effective prompts that guide AI in performing highly specialized testing tasks. Through a series of hands-on exercises, interactive sessions, and live demonstrations, attendees will learn how to integrate these AI-powered tools and techniques into their daily workflows, elevating the quality of their testing and the products they help to create.
