Elon Musk's AI Just "Wiped Out" World's Best DOTA 2 Players

Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, which remains one of investors to Open AI, page own microblog on Twitter said that winning in the game Dota 2 for PC was much more complicated than competitions in go or chess. A bot created by the Elon Musk-backed nonprofit OpenAI defeated champion human player Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin in two back to back demonstration matches. They never make it to round three, with the bot handily taking the first two rounds.

OpenAI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive eSports. OpenAI hopes to have its bot mastering five-on-fives by next year's Invitational, though.

Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance.

"Our bot is trained entirely through self play". The bot learned the game from scratch by self-play, and does not use imitation learning or tree search.

Greg Brockman, Open AI co-founder and chief technology officer, explained the team's methods in a YouTube video posted Friday.

The billionaire said that when someone is interested in issues of level of safety using bots, now is the time to prepare.

The catch, of course, is that 1v1 Dota is not Dota. You can build a pitching machine that throws ideal 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. OpenAI says it plans to continue developing its software so it can play full-scale matches. The full game is traditionally played 5v5. Still, OpenAI's not stopping there.

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. "Just wait for next year's International", Brockman said. It quickly began to implement research projects, see OpenAI Gym Gives Reinforcement Learning A Work Out and past year partnered with Microsoft in order to use Azure.
