Elite Dota 2 Team Easily Beat by Advanced AI Bots

Watch OpenAI's Dota 2 bots square off against five top players live on Twitch today A team of former Dota 2 pros just got owned by AI bots

Elon Musk's artificial intelligence program annihilated Dota 2 pros yesterday, in an exhibition match streamed live on Twitch from San Francisco. OpenAI's five-on-five bot team has been in development all year, and last month it was beating amateur teams, according to OpenAI's developers, but this was the first bout against real pros: former player Ben "Merlini" Wu, former player Ioannis "Fogged" Loucas, caster Austin "Capitalist" Walsh, former player William "Blitz" Lee, and current pro David "MoonMeander" Tan.

After OpenAI took down members of the audience easily during a warmup round, the bot network started and finished the first of the two matches strongly, stopping its human opponents from destroying any of its defensive towers.

A lot of humans think they're so good at video games that they make the point of describing themselves as "gamers". This resulted in OpenAI Five predicting a lower chance of winning of the match - just 2.9 percent, in fact.

OpenAI Five, the Dota 2 team (of bots) played against semi-professional players who were reportedly ranked in the 99.95th percentile in the world.

OpenAI Five, an AI bot has once again proved that the makers of the technology, humans, are a step behind their own creation.

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. Game Two was similarly one-sided, although the humans did manage to at least take one tower.

OpenAI's initiatives with Dota 2 began in March past year.

Ahead of the three-game battle, OpenAI in a blog post explained, "Because our training system Rapid is very general, we were able to teach OpenAI Five many complex skills since June simply by integrating new features and randomizations". OpenAI is scheduled to face an active professional squad at The International 8, which kicks off on August 15. Well, the AI platform developed by OpenAI would like to have a word, humans.
