Elon Musk's AI bot beats world-class gamers at Dota 2

Elon Musk's AI bot beats world-class gamers at Dota 2

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.

Open AI's goal is to build safe artificial general intelligence.

As its Chairman Elon Musk had tweeted, competitive e-Sports are more complex than traditional board games like Chess & Go.

The bot which had been playing with several players in the world both amateurs and professionals, today faced the Dendi (one of the leaders in Dota 2) at the main stage of The International (annual Dota 2 tournament).

On July 12, 2014, a day before Roy was found dead, Carter wrote: "So I guess you aren't gonna do it then, all that for nothing". He said he will also argue Carter didn't break any laws because MA doesn't have a law against assisting or encouraging suicide.

Or, as Musk puts it, to ensure that AI doesn't grow unchecked and become the death of humanity.

According to the OpenAI website, their bot has taken down SumaiL and Arteezy as well, the two Dota players best suited to facing off against a bot one on one.

Dendi later elaborated on Twitter that he found the bot "fun" and "challenging" to play against.

Referring to the challenge of teaching a robot to play this game which has very complicated rules he points out that the bot is entirely self trained. "Our next step is to create a team of Dota 2 bots which can compete and collaborate with the top human teams", read the blog. A second round ended similarly, with Dendi surrendering after a few minutes. Earlier this year, an AI built by Microsoft beat every level of the Ms. Pac-Man game - something no human player has ever achieved. You can build a pitching machine that throws ideal 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. In the full 5v5 game, there are thousands more variables than in the stripped-down version - so Musk's quick cry of victory is obfuscating the actual achievement a bit.
