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

One of the best players in the world, which is entrusted to the standoff bot, was a Ukrainian nickname Dendi. "The correlation between player skill and actions-per-minute is not strong, and in fact, our AI's actions-per-minute are comparable to that of an average human player".

As part of a special demonstration for the crown, the OpenAI bot defeated Dendi easily in the first of three rounds, with the victor being the first to two kills or destroying an in-game tower.

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

Defense of the Ancients 2 - commonly referred to as DOTA 2 - is what's known as a multiplayer online battle arena, or MOBA.

"It starts out completely random with no knowledge of the world, and simply plays against a copy of itself - which means it always has an evenly matched opponent", Brockman said. The title not only involves much more freedom of movement than most board games, but depends on feinting, denial and other less-than-obvious tactics.

Elon Musk reached to Twitter to reveal the cause of his excitement while he also compared the Dota 2's complexity with Chess and Go. But after his defeat, Dendi said the bot "feels a little like [a] human, but a little like something else", too.

According to the OpenAI website, their bot has taken down SumaiL and Arteezy as well, the two Dota players best suited to facing off against a bot one on one. Developers at the startup claim the AI learned to beat top Dota pros after just two weeks of real-time learning.

A video introduction for the bot showed various (human) Dota 2 players sharing their opinions on bots.

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