OpenAI Bot Triumphant Playing Dota 2

OpenAI Bot Triumphant Playing Dota 2

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.

The DOTA 2 AI faced off against Danil Ishutin, better known as Dendi and a popular name in the DOTA 2 eSports scene, at The International, the biggest annual tournament for the game.

Dota 2 is normally played as a 5-vs-5 team game, so limiting the bot to a 1-on-1 match greatly reduces the complexity.

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.

Yesterday, during The International, Valve's yearly Dota 2 tournament, a bot created by Elon Musk-backed startup OpenAI defeated some of the game's best players.

"We've coached it to learn just from playing against itself", said OpenAI researcher Jakub Pachocki.

Moments later, Open AI's bot was introduced as a pizza-box-sized robot draped in a silky black robe. "Our next step is to create a team of Dota 2 bots which can compete and collaborate with the top human teams", read the blog.

It bested Dendi - who's somewhat of a celebrity in the gaming community - in two short rounds.

Dendi later elaborated on Twitter that he found the bot "fun" and "challenging" to play against. Afterwards, Dendi admitted he was surprised at how easily the bot beat a human player, adding that it felt "a little like human, but a little like something else".

Earlier this year, an AI built by Microsoft beat every level of the Ms. Pac-Man game - something no human player has ever achieved. OpenAI hopes to have its bot mastering five-on-fives by next year's Invitational, though. "This required massive processing power".
