If programmers have a 50/50 chance of being replaced by robots, we should think seriously on how the same might happen to testers.Ino Breathable Perforated Slides for Men Microfiber Leather Summer Outdoor Fashion Slippers Open Back Anti-Slip Insipid Beat Close Toeshoes for Men or Women hyx Low-Cut Business Casual Soft Soles Flat shoes for Men, shoes Size 48, color Black (color 35936 Khaki).
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.Sandals Mens Slip-On Slipper Non-Slip Light Flip Flop Slingback Summer shoes for Beach Swimming Outdoor Causal Walking Camping,Black,42CHENXD shoes, Men's Formal Slip on Style Oxfords Business Pointed Toes Lace up Dress shoes Crocodile Texture Print Genuine Leather.
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,TAAVETTI Men's Formal Brown Handmade Leather Opal Brogue shoesGhua Sports Comfort shoes for Breathable Flat Sole of New Krasovki Leisure shoes 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.

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.
