Elon Musk's OpenAI Beats The Best Players At Dota 2

Elon Musk's OpenAI Beats The Best Players At Dota 2

He also emphasized upon the fact that over the course of the event, the AI had improved its skills by matching up against a number of professional Dota 2 players. The software was able to defeat Dendi, one of the top performing Dota 2 players.

OpenAI, a startup funded by Elon Musk, has developed an AI bot for DOTA 2 that's managed to beat the very best DOTA 2 players in 1v1 matches.

OpenAI says the bot was trained on self-play-meaning it started knowing nothing about the game, slowly learning which techniques worked and which didn't by playing a virtual version of itself. OpenAI stated that its AI had been performing at the championship and it has already defeated the Pakistan-based gamer Sumail (the world's best 1v1 player), and Arteezy (the world's overall top player).

As per OpenAI's statement, this is a step towards building AI systems which accomplish well-defined goals in messy, complicated situations involving real humans. In the second match, the player surrendered themselves, and the third time refused to play by asking "complete mockery" of it.

Elon Musk may be terrified of artificial intelligence (AI) and spreading a message of AI-led doom, but that hasn't stopped him from funding companies that are developing advanced AI.

Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance.

Move over, "Despacito", because Samir Mezrahi might have just released the new song of the summer. Most of the time the songs we store on our phones are usually songs we want to hear.

In fairness, the website admits the bot was built "in collaboration with Valve" so it's possible they had a little insider knowledge, even if the creators insist the bot has the same actions per minutes (APM) as an average player. In the meantime, the company said it will soon let anybody play against the bot.
