Katalon AI is a software quality platform that incorporates artificial intelligence to enhance the testing of web applications, mobile apps, desktop apps, and APIs. The integration of AI in Katalon primarily focuses on visual testing, allowing users to employ layout-based and content-based comparison methods to identify significant UI changes. This approach helps overcome false positives, enabling testers to concentrate on substantial UI alterations that are critical to human interaction. Katalon’s AI-driven visual testing involves automated intelligent comparisons, highlighting vital changes in an application’s layout or content.
Katalon distinguishes itself from tools like Selenium by providing a more user-friendly experience with pre-built features and integrations, allowing for the creation and reuse of automated UI test scripts without the need for extensive coding skills. It simplifies UI test automation and can run tests on various elements, including pop-ups, iFrames, and wait times, across different operating systems.
