Reimagining Automation

45-minute Keynote

Test automation continues to be a struggle for so many teams. Let's reimagine what "Agile" testing and automation could look like.

Virtual Pass session


9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. Wednesday 15th


Room F1+F2+F3 - Plenary


Testers, Developers, Managers


  • To learn what autonomous testing is and how it will be different from traditional automation.
  • To learn how autonomous testing tools will change our software development and testing workflows.
  • To learn how to build helpful autonomous tools that can deliver real value instead of gimmicks.

The future will be autonomous!

Let’s face it: test automation is hard. Teams across the industry continue to struggle with the same old problems again and again: flaky tests, poor coverage, and never enough time to develop automation. While many teams have reached success, many others feel left behind.

It’s time to rethink how we approach testing and automation. Instead of building automated test suites that merely repeat hard-coded presuppositions, what if we built autonomous tools that could learn our products dynamically and point out changes during development? Any time we make a change to the code, we could run these tools to find out if the actual changes in behavior meet our expectations or cause bugs.

In this talk, we will learn what autonomous testing is and how it will make testing truly Agile. Although we don’t have fully autonomous tools available yet, we will learn how we can start building them today. Autonomous testing could help resolve so many frustrating parts of testing. Let’s build that future together!
