OpenAI's Dota 2 bot defeats world's best pro player

The fear of the AI system evolving into Skynet has since been debunked, but combined with the DOTA 2-playing OpenAI bot, we can't help but wonder what the future holds for the technology.

The full game of Dota is played by two teams of five.

Dota 2 is normally played as a 5-vs-5 team game, so limiting the bot to a 1-on-1 match greatly reduces the complexity.

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.

In the live Shadow Fiend mirror match against Dendi, the bot executed an impossibly flawless creep block, perfectly balanced creep aggro, and even recognized and cancelled Dendi's healing items.

The bot which had been playing with several players in the world both amateurs and professionals, today faced the Dendi (one of the leaders in Dota 2) at the main stage of The International (annual Dota 2 tournament). After the AI quickly got the first kill in the second round, the human player gave up and forfeited the rest of the match.

The Artificial Intelligence, as created by OpenAI, learned the gameplay all by itself, from the scratch.

In fairness, the website admits the bot was built "in collaboration with Valve" so it's possible they had a little insider knowledge, even if the creators insist the bot has the same actions per minutes (APM) as an average player. Right now, the company had just developed one single 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.
