A Quagmire of Terminology: Verification and Validation, Testing, and Evaluation

Valerie Barr, Hofstra University, USA

Software engineering literature presents multiple definitions for the terms verification, validation and testing. The ensuing difficulties carry into research on the verification and validation of intelligent systems. We explore both these areas and then address the additional terminology problems faced when attempting to carry out verification and validation work in a new domain such as natural language processing (NLP).
