OpenAI's Dota 2 bot defeats world's best pro player

While its actions per minute aren't any better than that of an average flesh-and-bone player, the choices make a huge difference.

Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance.

The machines have won again: last night, OpenAI's Dota 2 bot beat Danil "Dendi" Ishutin at The International, one of the biggest eSports events in the world, and remains undefeated against the world's top Dota 2 players.

It was a 1 vs 1 Dota 2 match in a controlled environment but the AI's success is still remarkable.

There is no doubt that the milestone achieved by the bot is astonishing, however, what's particularly impressive about this feat is that winning in Dota requires players to have an intuition about what their opponents are thinking about doing and then build a corresponding game plan accordingly.




"We've coached it to learn just from playing against itself", said OpenAI researcher Jakub Pachoki.

Open AI says their next goal is to get the bot ready for the infinitely more complex 5v5 matches, noting it might have something ready for next year.

The reason Dota 1v1 is considered a complex game is because the players must learn to plan, attack, trick, and deceive their opponents. In the second game, after the AI scored a quick kill, Dendi threw in the towel, saying that the bot was simply "too strong!" OpenAI stated that its AI had been performing at the championship and it has already defeated the Pakistan-based gamer Sumail (the world's best 1v1 player), and Arteezy (the world's overall top player).

Players expressed surprise at the many human-like qualities the bot expressed, but Dendi did add that the bot felt a "little like something else" as well.

The company has also talked about their future endeavors with the bot.
