Intelligent Decisions for DevOps Processes: AI in the Service of Software Engineering
AI and Software Engineering have always been in tandem throughout the history of Computer Science. AI algorithms have been implemented in exceptionally useful tools and products using well-established software processes. On the other side, AI has frequently contributed smart analytics in supporting software development. Now, we enter a new era for both disciplines, where speed, volume and accuracy are crucial challenges. Now, the synergy between the two disciplines is as pertinent as ever. In this talk, I will explore this collaboration mainly from the perspective of Software Engineering and show examples of AI contributing smart methods and analytics to support modern software processes.
