OpenAI Bot Remains Undefeated against World's Greatest Dota 2 Players

In the 1v1 format, however, both players are assigned the same hero, Shadow Fiend, a popular offensive hero favored by numerous world's best central-role (known as mid lane) players.

The Artificial Intelligence, as created by OpenAI, learned the gameplay all by itself, from the scratch.

Elon Musk's been one of the loudest voices in tech about the dangers of AI - even setting up a foundation, OpenAI with a mission: "discovering and enacting the path to safe artificial general intelligence". OpenAI's self-trained bot made a surprise appearance at this year's International Dota 2 tournament held in Seattle and had a decisive victory.

Or, as Musk puts it, to ensure that AI doesn't grow unchecked and become the death of humanity.

An OpenAI bot has beaten some of the world's greatest Dota 2 players. A second round ended similarly, with Dendi surrendering after a few minutes.

The next step for OpenAI is to build a team of Dota bots that can both compete, and partner with, human players.

The AI win stunned the gaming community, because bots are generally considered inferior to expert human players. At a certain level, most pros are good enough to find strategies and weaknesses in the bot's play style that they can exploit and beat the bots easily.

Then, Brockman said, it was time to put the bot to the test at The International, which is Dota 2's world championship. "This guy is really scary", Dendi kept saying, and at one point yelped "Please stop bullying me!" when the bot rushed at him aggressively. Earlier this year, an AI built by Microsoft beat every level of the Ms. Pac-Man game - something no human player has ever achieved. "Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go", tweeted Musk. In the future, it aims to develop a complete bot Dota 2 team. "This required massive processing power".
