OpenAI’s Bots Just Beat Professional DotA 2 Players

OpenAI’s Bots Just Beat Professional DotA 2 Players

The Dota 2-playing artificial intelligence isn't the type to be contained by a single desktop PC. "And finally, in a game three played purely for pride, the humans managed to squeeze out a win".

Comprised of five neural networks, one of which crushed a pro player in a 1 v 1, the OpenAI team has already defeated plenty of Dota 2 amateurs and is now going full S̶k̶y̶n̶e̶t pro.

And the OpenAI has the advantage of learning through rigorous reinforcement training, a machine learning technique that involves teaching AI agents through trial and error and then "rewarding" them when they carry out a good action in the game.

Manafort's lawyers press witness about his own lies, affair, embezzlement
Gates testified that Manafort asked him to float Calk, who was on Trump's economic advisory council, for Secretary of the Army. Prosecutors in Paul Manafort's financial fraud trial say they have eight witnesses left and expect to rest their case Friday.

Manchester United approach snubbed by Atletico Madrid star Diego Godin
However, The Sun say Mourinho now feels Godin used the Red Devils to broker a new Atletico contract instead. Reports have also suggested Godin has a release clause in his Atletico contract worth just £18m.

Ford's buck-a-beer plan likely to cost LCBO revenue
Even a brand like Laker, which once prided itself on its $1-a-bottle price point, is retailing at $1.95 for a 473 ml can. The new price floor doesn't apply to draft beer sold in restaurants and bars or ciders, spirits and wine.

OpenAI bots played a match (with some significant alterations) against current pro player David "MoonMeander" Tan, former pros Ben "Merlini" Wu, William "Blitz" Lee and Ioannis "Fogged" Lucas and caster Austin "Capitalist" Walsh. "The typical Dota 2 game, even on the professional tier, involves quite a bit of equivocation about whether to engage in a fight, or whether to try to shift it to a more favorable battleground, or to run away from it completely". "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 second match saw the pro team take out one of OpenAI's towers, but the AI group won regardless. Heroes in Dota 2 often interact in complex ways.

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. OpenAI co-founder and CTO Greg Brockman has previously described it as - if you assume that it takes a human at least 12,000 hours to become a professional at the game, OpenAI's systems essentially play 100 human lifetimes of experience every day to train. The OpenAI Dota bot gets better by playing games against itself at high-speed. Well, the AI platform developed by OpenAI would like to have a word, humans.

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