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


The OpenAI program has played so many games of Dota 2, learning from playing against itself until it figures out how to counter any given situation, that it can take on one of the world's best.

It was a 1 vs 1 Dota 2 match in a controlled environment but the AI's success is still remarkable. It had announced putting its AI against the top human competitors. From what Brockman said, it seems that the company is hoping that the bot keeps on learning as quickly as it now is, and improve upon its cooperative techniques to take on a full team of professionals before long.

OpenAI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive eSports. Sumail, also a TechJuice 25 under 25, is one of the Time Magazine's top 30 influential teenagers.

This afternoon, Musk tweeted that a bot built by his non-profit, OpenAI, beat several of the world's best players at the video game, Dota 2.

"This guy is scary", Dendi repeated during play as the bot whittled down his health.

The bot and Dendi went up against each other in 1-on-1 matches, with the rules being that the first player to score two kills or destroy a tower would be the victor. The same results continued second time, forcing Dendi to surrender.

Artificial Intelligence is now one topic, about which people are really divided and quite skeptical.

The OpenAI bot beat its human opponent, a pro gamer called Dendi, in less than 10 minutes of play. Musk thanked the company via Twitter for allowing Open AI to use the Microsoft Azure crowd computing platform to develop the bot.

A bot created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence startup backed by Tesla CEO and visionary Elon Musk, could be the new best DOTA 2 player in the world, as the world's top human players have so far been no match for it.
