After Google's Artificial Intelligence AlphaGo beating the best human minds in the Go tournament, it is time for the next AI to beat the modern day gamers.
Artificial Intelligence is now one topic, about which people are really divided and quite skeptical.
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.
The MOBA is one of the most popular video games in all of competitive eSports, but no matter how good the best squishy humans are at the game, it seems OpenAI is better. 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.
"This guy is scary", Dendi repeated during play as the bot whittled down his health.
The team behind OpenAI plan on extending the bot's capabilities with the hope it can compete in 5-v-5 matches at Dota 2 tournaments next year. A second round ended similarly, with Dendi surrendering after a few minutes.
The billionaire said that when someone is interested in issues of level of safety using bots, now is the time to prepare. You can build a pitching machine that throws flawless fastballs all day long, and probably a batting machine that hits them out of the park, but building a team of robotic baseball players is a completely different story. Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go.
A video introduction for the bot showed various (human) Dota 2 players sharing their opinions on bots.
This isn't the first time a bot has made waves in the gaming world.
"Would like to express our appreciation to Microsoft for use of their Azure cloud computing platform", he wrote.
