  1. How can we automate our test generation so that our covered score goes up more
  2. quickly? One way to do it is with randomization seeds. Randomization seeds are
  3. basically the initial state of your randomization engine. So if you have the
  4. same test and you give it different seeds, you get actually different results.
  5. This way, you get much more bang for the buck from your tests and we use this
  6. method extensively. This will help you to create higher coverage scores, but it
  7. goes only so far. Giving a thousand seeds for the same test is not very
  8. effective, the effect levels off pretty quickly. Therefore, we want to use
  9. randomization seeds extensively. It's much better to use computers than humans
  10. to drive up your coverage scores.
