Software Should be Made for Humans
I attended Cornell Silicon Valley 2017, #CSV17, in early March. I’m a graduate of Cornell, and have found all of the Cornell events I have attended beneficial. This year’s conference was no exception. It featured presentations on various types of software innovation, some designed to plumb our humanity, others designed to replace it. The event never fails to rejuvenate me, inspiring new ideas and fresh thinking.
I listened closely to the keynote speech on reverse-engineering the brain for intelligent machines and thought the most important takeaway was that current algorithms are very fragile, not adaptive. Yes, we have gone beyond the first stage of artificial intelligence. But for truly adaptive and learning algorithms, we have a long road ahead. Applying this to our field of software engineering and, in particular, software quality and testing, I get a clearer picture of what’s ahead for software testing. We will see test cases that adapt and change, applying testing algorithms rather than specific test cases. Just as there will be software innovations in development, they will occur in quality assurance as well.
Yes, we have gone beyond the first stage of artificial intelligence. But for truly adaptive and learning algorithms, we have a long road ahead.
Many companies talk and write about the concept of a software quality center of excellence. At XBOSoft, over the last 10 years, we've satisfied one client at a time as we have continued to build up our expertise. Having just celebrated our 10 year anniversary, I believe that XBOSoft’s software quality center of excellence resides in our team.
I'm writing about this because I must say that I was extremely proud of our team today. I did a routine check up call with two of our clients. I usually start the call off with, "I just wanted to check in with you to make sure everything is going ok and that our team is doing a good job for you. I want to make sure that if you have a complaint or an area that you think we can improve, that you have a number you can call and a person who will listen."
In both of my calls I listened as our clients discussed that they were more than satisfied with our services. It made me realize how easy my job is because our team is so strong.

The changes sweeping through the healthcare data landscape created substantial challenges for the makers and users of healthcare software. Healthcare IT departments have often struggled to keep up with demands from healthcare providers, patients and government regulators. That’s why software developer Mobile MedSoft has partnered over time with XBOSoft to manage its quality assurance: XBOSoft consistently delivers high quality services and ensures that, when Mobile MedSoft releases a new product, it performs as expected.
Five years ago, Mobile MedSoft turned to XBOSoft to manage its healthcare software quality control. Since the partnership formed, the two companies have developed a deep and highly effective relationship that, says Mobile MedSoft President and CEO Duke Yetter, has resulted in better end products for the company’s long-term care pharmacy customers.
