Principles of Quality Assurance

As Wikipedia say, Quality assurance includes two principles: “Fit for purpose” (the product should be suitable for the intended purpose); and “right first time” (mistakes should be eliminated). For me this needs to be broken down further to understand in layman terms. Obviously the goal is that the products should meets all functional and usabilityContinue reading “Principles of Quality Assurance”

Classes of ML Algorithms

There are 3 classes of machine learning algorithms. Supervised learning – In this method, we must train machine to use the data. We tag the data and put in right categories. There are regression and classification model that can be used to answer any data. Unsupervised learning – New data is used for the learningContinue reading “Classes of ML Algorithms”

Usability Testing

As per, Usability testing refers to evaluating a product or service by testing it with representative users. Typically, during a test, participants will try to complete typical tasks while observers watch, listen and takes notes.  The goal is to identify any usability problems, collect qualitative and quantitative data and determine the participant’s satisfaction with theContinue reading “Usability Testing”

Things to remember for testing the Machine Learning programs

Introduction Machine Learning is growing every day in all sorts of areas and some examples are for e.g., voice recognition systems used by virtual personal assistants like Amazon Alexa or Google Home. As the field of ML continues to grow there needs to be more and more need for the quality assurance to make sure everything worksContinue reading “Things to remember for testing the Machine Learning programs”

Software Testing using AI and Machine Learning

These days Artificial intelligence and Machine learning is everywhere. People behind calls have been removed with Chatbots. Intelligent bots and programs are substituting humans everywhere. Computer-based intelligence procedures are influencing all parts of programming testing. Machine Learning (ML) is Subpart of AI. It depends on working with enormous datasets (Big Data), by social affairs, lookingContinue reading “Software Testing using AI and Machine Learning”

Tests that is hard to Be Automated

• Usability testing – “How easy is the application to use?” • One-time testing • “ASAP” testing – “We need to test NOW!” • Ad hoc/random testing – based on intuition and knowledge of application • Back-end testing Author Bio Shalu Chawla works in the field of Automation Engineer, QA Analyst and Business Analysis. ForContinue reading “Tests that is hard to Be Automated”

Tests that can be Automated!

• Tests that need to be run with every build of the application (sanity check, regression) • Tests that use multiple data values for the same actions (data driven tests) • Complex and time consuming tests • Tests requiring a great deal of precision • Tests involving many simple, repetitive steps • Testing needed onContinue reading “Tests that can be Automated!”

Software Testing

Software testing is a process of executing a program or application with the intent of finding the software bugs. It can also be stated as the process of validating and verifying that a software program or application or product: • Meets the business and technical requirements that guided it’s design and development • Works as expected Why doContinue reading “Software Testing”

Black box and White box testing

Black box testing • Black Box Testing is a software testing method in which the internal structure/ design/ implementation of the item being tested is NOT known to the tester • Mainly applicable to higher levels of testing: Acceptance Testing, System testing • In this sort of testing testers mainly focuses on the functionality ofContinue reading “Black box and White box testing”
