We are intellectually convincing ourselves how AI/ML is going to to impact testing and testers in general. I am of the opinion that while this story unfolds for rest of the world, our story would be different, the way it has always been. Precisely, we spend almost a decade of jugaad on anything new before catching up with the real essence of something. "Me too", "Me too" is what we focus on rather than 'Am I...?" "Should I...?" etc. This presentation is not a futuristic presentation, it's a presentation on the past and current state of test automation - the desi test automation story - the way I've seen it in most organisations and in the hands most Jugaadu test automation engineers in India.
