OpenAI First Ever To Defeat World's Best Players In Competitive ESports


At an e-sports tournament hosted by Valve, OpenAI’s bot managed to defeat pro gamer Danylo Ishutin, more commonly known by alias Dendi.

It was a 1 vs 1 Dota 2 match in a controlled environment but the AI’s success is still remarkable. Also, this has been the very first instance of an artificially intelligent system defeating world class players in an eSports competition.
Elon Musk reached to Twitter to reveal the cause of his excitement while he also compared the Dota 2’s complexity with Chess and Go. Was he indirectly comparing the OpenAI bot with AlphaGo?
The pro-grade Dota player was quite surprised as he got thrashed by the ruthless AI in two games which ultimately compelled him to cancel further matches. The AI “feels a little like [a] human, but a little like something else,” Dendi said.
The bot managed to show off its Dota skills after getting trained for two weeks, though it managed to feed itself with tons of real-time experience during that period. OpenAI’s future plans include preparing their bot for the complete 5 vs 5 Dota matches.
OpenAI is a non-profit that Musk created to save humans from evil computers. It has been a couple of times when Musk has warned about the negative possibilities of AI. He even got into a verbal clash with Mark Zuckerberg for downplaying future threats related to AI.
With hopes to not see AI bashing humans again, how do you think AI can help us in the future?  Drop your thoughts in the comments.
