End to End Testing for Virtual Assistants
How do you get your bot ready for production? Unit testing can be done in a similar fashion as any other software program, but integration testing comes with its own challenges: a “good” bot is non-deterministic by nature, conversation flows can be updated at any times by - potentially - non technical staff. There is a challenge of making the tests resemble a natural dialogue, but still be flexible enough for complex bot behavior. To solve this problem, Aiden.ai is announcing Autobot, the first open source, end to end testing framework for chatbots.
