Elon Musk's AI Just "Wiped Out" World's Best DOTA 2 Players

Elon Musk's AI Just

During the tournament The International in accordance with the game was unusual match.

In the live Shadow Fiend mirror match against Dendi, the bot executed an impossibly ideal creep block, perfectly balanced creep aggro, and even recognized and cancelled Dendi's healing items.

Elon Musk's OpenAI bot has beaten human player Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin in a special one-on-one Dota 2 match-up, arranged on the sidelines of Valve's yearly Dota event.

Much as we'd hate to see our favourite teams get thrashed by a team of bots, it's hard to pretend that we're not excited at the prospect. It learns to predict its opponent's movements and pick which strategies are best in unfamiliar scenarios.

Hopefully our best and brightest DOTA 2 players can eventually fend off the computer programs that threaten to usurp their dominance. Elon Musk himself has expressed concerns about the growing threat of AI and the need to regulate it "before it's too late".
