All Bot Team OpenAI Decimates Former Pros in Dota 2 Tournament

All Bot Team OpenAI Decimates Former Pros in Dota 2 Tournament”

Miraculously in game three the humans did manage to win, but it was a grind to pull off and they were already left demoralized by their crushing defeat.

OpenAI, which has been in development as a Dota 2 bot since The International 7 past year, went up against a full team of five highly-skilled human players-composed of Ioannis "Fogged" Loucas, William "Blitz" Lee, Ben "Merlini" Wu, David "MoonMeander" Tan, and Austin "Capitalist" Walsh.

Update: And that's game, with the AI victorious in two rounds out of three. After completing the first draft, the OpenAI system predicted a 95%-win probability, even though the matchup seemed more or less even to the audience, suggesting that drafting is even more important to strategy than previously thought by human players.

Dota 2 is one of the most challenging games available out there, and it might come as a surprise to you that five bots from OpenAI have beaten professional players convincingly.

Next, OpenAI's developers plan to take the bots to Valve's official global tournament, where they'll compete against the best Dota 2 players in the world.

Just recently, OpenAI showed off that it's system was intelligent enough to face off against human opposition, learning and exploring the many complexities of Dota 2 at a rapid rate compared to the human mind. "You have imperfect information, you have team work, you have these exponential combinations of different heroes and items, and you have to be able to deal with all of that".

The latest victory for OpenAI Five is a positive step towards the firm's goal of competing against the best proteamat The International which is the largest annual Dota tournament in the world. The AI team consists of five neural networks that train using 128,000 CPUs at once, playing 180 years' worth of matches against themselves every day.

Next up for OpenAI will be to take on one the best players in the world at The International 8, in September.

For those who don't know, OpenAI is a non-profit organization founded by Elon Musk.
