Speech title

ML Testing: The Need of a New Way of Thinking

Talk description

When testing functionality based on machine learning or trained functionality, the focus of your testing changes. The code itself stops being interesting to some degree, and instead the focus needs to be elsewhere. Based on personal experience and research projects, this session will highlight the importance of testing your data, why independent testing is vital, and how some “old school” tools can help when thinking & planning test activities.

3 key takeaways:

  • Why we need to think slightly different when testing ML
  • How simulators can aid you
  • How we can reuse the concept of test levels to showcase our testing activities
