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

This one from Open AI - a nonprofit artificial intelligence research firm known mainly for its backing by serial entrepreneur Elon Musk, of Tesla and SpaceX fame - is a different story, and possibly a cautionary one. The bot went live against the World's best human Dota 2 players, destroying all of them. It had announced putting its AI against the top human competitors. 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.

Dendi later elaborated on Twitter that he found the bot "fun" and "challenging" to play against.

Check out the gameplay the bot shows off - with players even saying that it plays in a very human-like manner. The bot was trained by simply copying the AI and letting the two play each other for weeks on end.

Greg Brockman, himself, appeared to be impressed by the success of the method. And rather than attempt a third round, Dendi surrendered. You can build a pitching machine that throws flawless fastballs all day long, and probably a batting machine that hits them out of the park, but building a team of robotic baseball players is a completely different story. "Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go", tweeted Musk.

The bot was also taking challenges from random players at the venue, accordingto Dota 2 journalist Victoria "riningear" Rose.

The latest game in which AI has beaten a top human player is Dota 2, a battle arena video game published by Valve, as a sequel to Defense of the Ancients.

The implications, of course, are that a bot that can master complex video games can have other uses too.

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