Dota 2-Playing Robot Beats the Pros at The International
Aug 12 2017 by Michele Stevens
Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance.
Musk said Saturday via Twitter that AI is "more [of a] risk than North Korea".
OpenAI, the non-profit organization co-founded by Elon Musk in 2015 with a mission to build safe AGI, and ensure AGI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible; has recently developed a bot that could beat the best in the popular cult gameDota 2 in one on one matches under standard tournament rules. The bot went live against the World's best human Dota 2 players, destroying all of them. Each player chooses from a hundred heroes and hundreds of items.
Greg Brockman, Open AI co-founder and chief technology officer, explained the team's methods in a YouTube video posted Friday.
It was a 1 vs 1 Dota 2 match in a controlled environment but the AI's success is still remarkable.
"We just let it play lifetimes of 1v1 against itself, and coached it on what we thought was good or bad".
Then, Brockman said, it was time to put the bot to the test at The International, which is Dota 2's world championship.
Vijay shocked with the online abuse by his fans
Rajendran, through her posts later, indicated that the backlash was an organised exercise in targeting her. According to the Newspaper, The tweets were abusive, misogynistic, and cringe-worthy, to say the least.
"They're pretty terrible", one player said.
It bested Dendi - who's somewhat of a celebrity in the gaming community - in two short rounds. A second round ended similarly, with Dendi surrendering after a few minutes. The bot quickly bested Dendi in two matches, leading Dendi to say it's "too strong!" "I need more time [to practice] I guess".
The bot went up against famous midlaners Danil "Dendi" Ishutin, Syed "Sumail" Hassan, and Artour "Arteezy" Babaev in three mid-only Shadow Fiend mirror matches. "But it has no room for even slight mistakes", he wrote.
