OpenAI Controlled Dota 2 Bots Demolish Team of Former Professional Players

The humans did eventually manage to grab game three from the bots but the damage was done.

The first game was a humbling for Team Human, as they failed to destroy even one of Team Bots towers. Well, the AI platform developed by OpenAI would like to have a word, humans.

OpenAI, which has been in development as a Dota 2 bot since The International 7 a year ago, went up against a full team of five highly-skilled human players-composed of Ioannis "Fogged" Loucas, William "Blitz" Lee, Ben "Merlini" Wu, David "MoonMeander" Tan, and Austin "Capitalist" Walsh. Even the, AlphaZero achieved a superhuman level of play in the games of chess, shogi and Go within 24 hours.

The next step for OpenAI will be to pit its AI system against professional Dota 2 players at The International, the world's largest Dota tournament taking place 20 to 25 August in Vancouver. We know that this is a machine that is tasked with being incredible at Dota 2 but you really need to see just how good it is to understand why my jaw is permanently on the floor.

Additionally, ambulances were called to Kidder's home five times in seven months, including at the time of her death . For years, Kidder lived with bipolar disorder and became an advocate for raising awareness about mental health.

Team Human did squeeze out a win in the third match, but not without some strings attached. OpenAI had the capacity to predict its chance of winning during each stage of the game, as well as during character selection. After all, the victory of the non-profit AI research company's bot collective over humans in a strategic MMORPG is just one of many instances of computational technology growing smarter by the day.

The only possible bright point was that OpenAI let the final match composition be chosen by the audience, meaning the audience stepped in to vote for which heroes OpenAI would control.

Given that OpenAI Five had already won, for game 3 the audience was invited to draft OpenAI Five's heros and chose an adversarial lineup that was described as "fairly Looney-Tunes". Heroes in Dota 2 often interact in complex ways. It then faced a team of some of the world's top players (Blitz, Cap, Fogged, Merlini and Moonmeander) in a best-of-three contest.
