Overview: Have you ever tried to build unit tests for your AI, only to find that you're spending more time maintaining the tests than you are fixing and balancing the AI? Have you built a few tests initially, but as the pace picks up and deadlines get tighter, found that there isn't time anymore? Have you looked wistfully at the benefits that unit testing is supposed to bring, but in the end concluded that it just isn't practical for your AI? In this talk we'll discuss the benefits that automated tests bring and why you want them. We'll drill into the technical, discussing how to build tests that speed development rather than slowing it down. Finally, we'll discuss the cultural and process changes needed to take full advantage of them.
