Dota 2 veterans defeated by OpenAI bots

Watch OpenAI's Dota 2 bots square off against five top players live on Twitch today

Comprised of five neural networks, one of which crushed a pro player in a 1 v 1, the OpenAI team has already defeated plenty of Dota 2 amateurs and is now going full S̶k̶y̶n̶e̶t pro.

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

The humans were absolutely destroyed in the first match as the OpenAI FIVE bots routed them with precise long range sniper shots, slows, and silences. Last month, the company released footage of a robotic arm manipulating a cube with uncanny dexterity that was trained using reinforcement learning algorithm as the OpenAI Five.

The human vs machine challenge began with a warmup match against the audience, which OpenAI won easily.

OpenAI's team of AI-powered Dota 2 bots have reached yet another impressive milestone - it was able to beat the five veteran players in a 3-on-3 match, dominating two rounds before being defeated narrowly in the third match.

$3.9B buyout of Tribune by Sinclair ends in acrimony
The Maryland company said Thursday in a prepared statement that the Tribune lawsuit is "entirely without merit". Sinclair defended the script as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media.

Next, OpenAI's developers plan to take the bots to Valve's official worldwide tournament, where they'll compete against the best Dota 2 players in the world. Valve's multiplayer online battle arena video game, Dota 2, is the latest example of that.

You might remember OpenAI popping up in the news just recently. It predicted a 95 percent win probability after seeing the hero teams. This resulted in the bot predicting a lower chance of winning of the match. It still pummeled the human team in just 25 minutes.

The tournament was a best of three but clearly designed for fun more than goal. This was a best-of-three against a team of 99.95th percentile Dota players: Blitz, Cap, Fogged, Merlini, and MoonMeander - four of whom had played Dota professionally - in front of a live audience and 100,000 concurrent livestream viewers.

"We work on Dota because it is so complex", Brockman said during a speech at the tournament on Sunday. The Open AI bot went on to best other notable players including, SumaiL, and former world champion, Dendi.
