Theme: AI Testing & Tools

AI is no more a buzzword in the IT industry, it is now mainstream. Global enterprises have embraced  AI and ML on an unprecedented scale and many other organizations are waiting at the sideline to step into this area. Initial results are promising and perhaps superlative. For  many who are working on these solutions, the Neural Networks created and the algorithms implemented are still a black box.

At many instances, it’s like looking into a sorcerers crystal ball and believing the predictions. How do we ensure unbiased, integrity and explainable results? The missing links are the Test of the AI system itself. Most stop at functional and non-functional testing of the AI system itself without getting into the final analysis and answers offered by these systems.

Hence the need for Testing Tools that can go, think and beyond the AI systems, lest we believe the machines blindly.

Let us understand these tools and systems which help us decide if the AI systems are taking the right decisions!
