Software Quality Assurance and Testing / Software Quality

What's the difference between Quality Control & Quality Assurance? Are they both same?

Artificial intelligence (AI) researchers at Facebook have spent the last year working on a project that saw an AI system learn how to navigate parts of the sprawling conurbation that is New York City. The study is designed to help computers understand natural human language, paving the way for AI assistants to communicate with people more competently.

Teaching machines to understand us is far from easy, and feeding them raw text data isn't necessarily the best way forward in the eyes of the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) group.

Instead, the Facebook researchers used an approach called "embodied AI", also known as "grounded language learning", which favors learning in the context of a system's surroundings, rather than training through large data sets of text, such as Wikipedia.

FAIR's "Talk the Walk" project sees a "tourist" bot navigate their way through 360-degree images of five actual New York City neighborhoods. This is done with the help of a "guide" bot, which sees nothing but a 2D map of the neighborhood. The tourist bot essentially describes what it "sees" and the guide bot responds with directions. Facebook found that its bot guide was better than human guides at giving directions.

Facebook isn't the only tech giant working on natural language understanding. Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Amazon are all pursuing similar projects in a bid to give their own AI assistants an edge.

Blockchain / How should cryptocurrency be regulated?
« on: July 12, 2018, 08:30:13 PM »
Does Facebook know something about blockchain that we don't?

Probably. If there's one thing we can all agree on about blockchain tech and cryptocurrency, it's that most people don't understand them. Facebook, which recently re-organized itself to make blockchain one of its major focuses, clearly has something up its sleeve with regard to crypto. But even if Facebook revealed what it is, users would likely react with a head scratch.

The financial world is already a mystery to many. Add to that a layer of novel technology involving a digital "immutable ledger" that runs on a peer-to-peer network, decoupling the currency from any central authority, and even an interested person will start to resemble the Confused Lady meme.


To those folks, this week must have been especially troubling. It was Blockchain Week in New York City, headlined by CoinDesk's Consensus Conference. Besides the Lamborghinis on display and the bizarre crypto-inspired stunts, there was clear progress in bridging the world of cryptocurrency with that of real-world finance, including a new suite of investor tools and a new "stablecoin" for jittery crypto investors. HTC even debuted a blockchain-based phone.

But does any of that matter in light of crypto's Wild West reputation, with shady startups and scams dominating most of the headlines? How should the field be regulated? And what is Facebook's crypto team up to anyway?

WhatsApp wants to fight the spread of fake news — and that means a meaningful change is coming to its app.

On Tuesday, the company announced it's adding labels to forwarded messages so users can better identify rumors, fake news, and other false information that often spreads via the messaging app.


With the update, forwarded messages will have a small "forwarded" label, similar to forwarded email messages, indicating the note was originally written by someone other than the sender.

It may seem like a minor update, but it's one the company says could help people identify fake news and other types of misinformation. "WhatsApp cares deeply about your safety. We encourage you to think before sharing messages that were forwarded," the company wrote in a blog post.

You work a 9-to-5, and yet some jerk in the office keeps scheduling you for 8 a.m. meetings.

This madness has to stop, and, thanks to Google's new Working Hours feature that prevents people from adding you to meetings on Google Calendar outside of your pre-set available times, it just might. JK, your bosses are going to do whatever the hell they want with your time, but the new feature is at least a wonderfully passive-aggressive way to tell them to get bent.

Working Hours, announced by Google on June 27, is pretty straightforward.

"People who will try to schedule meetings with you outside of these hours will be informed that you are not available at that time," explains the company's blog post. "You can already set your working hours to one interval for all days of the week. With this launch, you can now customize your work hours for each day separately."

Thanks for sharing; need to grow research culture in this area.

Software Quality Assurance and Testing / Test Automation Framework
« on: July 12, 2018, 08:12:42 PM »
Testing frameworks are an essential part of any successful automated testing process. They can reduce maintenance costs and testing efforts and will provide a higher return on investment (ROI) for QA teams looking to optimize their agile processes.

What is a Test Framework?
Before diving into the most common types of frameworks and their benefits, let’s clarify what a test automation framework actually is. A testing framework is a set of guidelines or rules used for creating and designing test cases. A framework is comprised of a combination of practices and tools that are designed to help QA professionals test more efficiently.

These guidelines could include coding standards, test-data handling methods, object repositories, processes for storing test results, or information on how to access external resources.

While these are not mandatory rules and testers can still script or record tests without following them, using an organized framework typically provides additional benefits that would otherwise be missed out on.

BENEFITS OF A TEST AUTOMATION FRAMEWORK
Utilizing a framework for automated testing will increase a team’s test speed and efficiency, improve test accuracy, and will reduce test maintenance costs as well as lower risks. They are essential to an efficient automated testing process for a few key reasons: 

  • Improved test efficiency
    Lower maintenance costs
    Minimal manual intervention
    Maximum test coverage
    Reusability of code
[/b]

Types of Automated Testing Frameworks
There are six common types of test automation frameworks, each with their own architecture and different benefits and disadvantages. When building out a test plan, it’s important to choose the framework that is right for you.

  • Linear Automation Framework
    Modular Based Testing Framework
    Library Architecture Testing Framework
    Data-Driven Framework
    Keyword-Driven Framework
    Hybrid Testing Framework
