Artificial Intelligence vs Natural Stupidity: Is Winter Coming for Testers?

In the rapidly evolving landscape of software development, the role of testers has never been more crucial. As technology advances, new challenges and opportunities emerge, giving rise to a thought-provoking question: "Which one should testers fear more - the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or the enduring presence of Natural Stupidity?"


This keynote presentation delves into the intriguing dichotomy between two seemingly opposing forces: AI, the epitome of intelligent automation, and Natural Stupidity, the persistent human propensity for errors and oversights. By exploring the strengths and limitations of both, we aim to shed light on the nuanced dynamics that testers face in today's digital era.
