Dota 2-Playing Robot Beats the Pros at The International

Dota 2 - OpenAI Blog

The end result? OpenAI absolutely decimated established eSports champ Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin in a segment that popped up during Valve's annual Dota 2 tournament.

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.

The pro-grade Dota player was quite surprised as he got thrashed by the ruthless AI in two games which ultimately compelled him to cancel further matches.

To air 'Jersey Shore' reunion special August 20
The first official teaser for the brand new series Road Trip Reunion has finally been revealed. Their docu-series initially ran on MTV 2009-12.

Engineers from OpenAI, which is backed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, explained that their bot earned a "lifetime" of experience after two weeks of real-time Dota 2 training against itself, eventually working up to go undefeated against other professional players, including Artour "Arteezy" Babaev and Syed "Suma1L" Hassan. Sumail, also a TechJuice 25 under 25, is one of the Time Magazine's top 30 influential teenagers.

Today we played Dendi on mainstage at The International, winning a best-of-three match.

It's not only Google's AI that has the potential to defeat humans in their own game.

China has called on South Korea and the U.S.to suspend large scale military exercises in return for the North halting its programs in order to facilitate talks.

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. Although AI's action-per-minute was found to be in comparison to the average human player skill level, it was able to slowly able to learn from the mistakes and develop intuitive skills to beat even the best in the game.

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

The company has also talked about their future endeavors with the bot.
