Elon Musk's artificial intelligence program annihilated Dota 2 pros yesterday, in an exhibition match streamed live on Twitch from San Francisco. "Despite that, OpenAI five thrashed some of the most popular ex Dota 2 players, including Ben "Merlini" Wu, William "Blitz" Lee, Ioannis "Fogged" Lucas, the current pro player David "MoonMeander" Tan and play-by-play commentator Austin" Capitalist" Walsh.
The human vs machine challenge began with a warmup match against the audience, which OpenAI won easily.
The bots have only gotten better from there, sharpening their game-playing skills even to the point of being able to crush players who've been competing at Dota 2 since its beginning.
In spite of the restrictions, though, OpenAI still completely dominated the first two games, through a combination of near-flawless coordination and a "play as five"-oriented playstyle". The bots then learned to play Dota at the rate of 180 years per day and now they have evolved to a level where they have beaten human professional players easily. The bots defeated the humans, 2-1, talking plenty of smack along the way. Without the ability to build a team it knew how to play, the AI was at a disadvantage.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford announces 'Buck-a-Beer' plan
The minimum retail price for beer was $1.00 in Ontario from 2005 to 2008. The Premier of Ontario has announced his plan to make beer cheaper.
According to Greg Brockman, a co-founder of OpenAI, the company is working on designing bots that can beat elite human gamers because the simulated battle experience in Dota is so multi-faceted that it begins to approximate the chaos of the real world. Game Two was similarly one-sided, although the humans did manage to at least take one tower.
We previously reported on the massively complex undertaking it took for OpenAI to train the bots through reinforcement learning, which involved putting them into a virtual world and using trial and error to help them figure out for themselves how to reach a goal. This year's event is set to take place between 20-25 August in Vancouver.
Regardless, the OpenAI victory is incredible impressive, even more so because only a matter of months ago it was failing to beat amateur opposition. Well, the AI platform developed by OpenAI would like to have a word, humans.
