OpenAI’s Dota 2 Bot Shocks World’s Top Players at The International 7
In a surprising display of skill and intelligence, OpenAI’s bot took on some of the best Dota 2 players in the world during a special exhibition at The International 7. Unlike traditional bots, OpenAI’s bot showed advanced gameplay that rivaled human opponents.
The bot faced off against renowned midlaners Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, Syed “Sumail” Hassan, and Artour “Arteezy” Babaev in three mid-only Shadow Fiend mirror matches. Utilizing high-level tactics such as pulling creep aggro, denying creeps, and effective harassment, the bot easily defeated its opponents.
Not only did the bot compete against professional players, but it also accepted challenges from random players at the venue. In exchange for defeating the bot, players were rewarded with a free Shadow Fiend arcana. By the end of the day, all 50 arcanas had been claimed by non-professional players.
OpenAI is a project created by engineer and business magnate Elon Musk, aimed at combatting the potential dangers of rogue artificial intelligence. Musk has been vocal about his concerns and has even alerted the United States government about the risks involved.
Next Steps for OpenAI’s Dota 2 Bot
The next goal for OpenAI is to develop a team of five bots that can compete against a full squad in next year’s International competition.
