Here's a quick roundup of QA Company's "Meeting of Minds" session where Virtuoso participated to discuss the evolving role of AI in QA.

Last week, QA Company, Virtuoso’s trusted partner in the Netherlands hosted “Meeting of Minds”, a one-of-its-kind in-person knowledge sharing session which brought together 15 participants, including members from the Dutch Tax Authority and decision-makers from the insurance industry. By combining the knowledge of testers, test automation engineers and several customers, we delved into the evolving role of AI in testing as well as Virtuoso’s very own AI-powered capabilities. It truly was a special evening, but first, more about QA Company and our partnership–
