This paper proposed software testing system by using Artificial Intelligent techniques. In today's scenario, Software Testing is a critical issue in software development and maintenance for increasing the quality and reliability of the software. In Software Testing, regression testing is often performed and researchers are finding ways to reduce the regression testing cost. In this paper, an approach is proposed which draws inspiration from Swarm Intelligence to reduce test suite for regression testing. . This approach will strive to get the best optimal solution and contribute a lot in considerably reducing the testing cost, efforts and time of regression testing.
