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

Dota 2 - OpenAI Blog For the first time, AI crushed a professional Dota 2 player at the game's biggest tournament

Artificial Intelligence from Elon Musk's startup OpenAI made a surprise appearance at the World's biggest Dota 2 tournament.

"League of Legends" (pic) and "Dota 2" have dominated recent PC gaming revenues, says DFC.

Although Dota 2 has had bots for years now, their skill level has always been below what a human player would encounter in public matchmaking.

In accordance with the technical words of the company, Greg Brockman, the bot is able to perform the game of the enemy, and actively learn on their own. In the full 5v5 game, there are thousands more variables than in the stripped-down version - so Musk's quick cry of victory is obfuscating the actual achievement a bit. Earlier in the week, OpenAI reported that their bot beat both Sumail, the current 1v1 champion, and Arteezy, another of the world's best mid lane players. Players control one of dozens of different characters with varying abilities, and compete to collect items and control territory. But it's important to note that the bot was playing Dendi in a one versus one match, a heavily stripped down version of the full, team-based game where many, numerous variables in play are removed.

Usain Bolt to leave void after running final relay leg Saturday
It was the first time Bolt had been beaten at a major championships since the 4x100m relay at the 2007 worlds in Osaka. The IAAF World Championships are the coronation of Bolt's career, he planned to retire after the competition.

"We just let it play lifetimes of 1v1 against itself, and coached it on what we thought was good or bad", Brockman said in a video played before the match. In the future, it aims to develop a complete bot Dota 2 team. And rather than attempt a third round, Dendi surrendered. But after his defeat, Dendi said the bot "feels a little like [a] human, but a little like something else", too.

Dendi later elaborated on Twitter that he found the bot "fun" and "challenging" to play against. Existing since 2015, OpenAI is also a name in the list of companies formed by our space-loving entrepreneur, Elon Musk.

"Would like to express our appreciation to Microsoft for use of their Azure cloud computing platform", he wrote.
