ISTQB AI Testing by Knowit and Tieturi

Learn different ways of using AI to support testing and how to apply AI to testing tasks and quality management.

There are many similarities between Artificial Intelligence and human intelligence for one simple reason: Artificial Intelligence aims to mimic human intelligence. The term Artificial Intelligence dates back to the 1950s and refers to the objective of building and programming “intelligent” machines capable of imitating human beings.

As AI systems become more human, they become less predictable, and there are unique problems and quality characteristics, which need to be considered when testing such systems.

The ISTQB® AI Testing (CT-AI) certification extends understanding of artificial intelligence and/or deep (machine) learning, most specifically testing AI-based systems and using AI in testing.
