Dota 2-Playing Robot Beats the Pros at The International

This year's big Dota 2 tournament is now in its second to last day with only four teams remaining in competition.

Between the event's official games, Valve always includes some fun show matches, and this year it brought in Open AI's aforementioned Dota 2 bot to face off against the game's most famous player, Danil "Dendi" Ishutin, live on the main stage. In the meantime, the company said it will soon let anybody play against the bot.

It's not clear if artificial intelligence will take away all our jobs, but according to Elon Musk, it is going to take away our e-sports supremacy.

In an accompanying blog post, OpenAI wrote that its bot had been undefeated over the last few days in Dota 1v1, a "complex game with hidden information [in which] agents must learn to plan, attack, trick, and deceive their opponents". OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman said it took two weeks to train the bot, and it had previously beaten the world's top 1v1 player and the overall top-ranked player in the world.

Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance. "After being defeated by the bot twice, Dendi forfeited future matches with it, and expressed surprise that a bot could outplay a human". He said the bot "feels a little like [a] human, but a little like something else." read a report in The Verge.
