The bot technology of OpenAI has reached a point where it can now destroy a team of highly skilled, former professional, Dota 2 players - in a match that wasn't even close. "Despite that, OpenAI five thrashed some of the most popular ex Dota 2 players, including Ben "Merlini" Wu, William "Blitz" Lee, Ioannis "Fogged" Lucas, the current pro player David "MoonMeander" Tan and play-by-play commentator Austin" Capitalist" Walsh. For the second year running, the self-taught system faced five top players at The International - an annual tournament organized by the game's developer and publisher Valve. For this match, the audience was allowed to choose heroes for OpenAI Five. In game two, the AI wasn't as confident, giving itself a 76 percent chance to win.
The firm's Dota 2 team of bots - OpenAI Five - took on semi-professional players ranked in the 99.95th percentile in the world, and beat them 2-1 in a set of three games. The humans recovered a little in game two, conquering one tower, but still getting demolished. The characters Open AI played were selected by Twitch users, giving Team Human a slight advantage. This gave the AI a sufficient handicap for the human players to take the final win.
According to Greg Brockman, a co-founder of OpenAI, the company is working on designing bots that can beat elite human gamers because the simulated battle experience in Dota is so multi-faceted that it begins to approximate the chaos of the real world. The bots are powered by five artificial neural networks trained to play the game from scratch using reinforcement learning, an iterative process that involves observation, action and feedback.
Following the victory, Musk tweeted congratulating the OpenAI team. OpenAI is scheduled to face an active professional squad at The International 8, which kicks off on August 15. The list of handicaps included the ability to pick only 18 of the 115 available heroes in the pool, while Team Human was given freedom to use any hero of their choosing. Well, the AI platform developed by OpenAI would like to have a word, humans.
