This is not the first time bots engineered by OpenAI managed to defeat human players in the immensely popular MOBA game.

The bot technology of OpenAI has reached a point where it can now destroy a team of highly skilled, former professional, Dota 2 players - in a match that wasn't even close. Something interesting to note is that after the humans paused the first game, and the bots paused game two.

Oops, wrong Tommy Fleetwood: European Tour pays $230k to another golfer
The European Tour have apologised after Tommy Fleetwood's Open winnings of nearly £120,000 were sent to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood. Fleetwood, who begins his PGA Championship bid at Bellerive on Thursday , said: "It looks pretty genuine".

OpenAI Five has been working towards their goal of competing against the best pro team at The International which is the largest annual Dota tournament in the world. "The typical Dota 2 game, even on the professional tier, involves quite a bit of equivocation about whether to engage in a fight, or whether to try to shift it to a more favorable battleground, or to run away from it completely". Heroes in Dota 2 often interact in complex ways.

OpenAI, a non-profit research company co-founded by tech fixtures Elon Musk and Sam Altman, has been working on the Dota-playing bots for a year. In preparation the bots played through 180 years' worth of games against each other every day.

Six bombshells from Rick Gates' testimony in the Paul Manafort trial
On the seventh day of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's criminal trial, the prosecution wasn't ready to rest. Downing asked Gates if he recalled telling the special counsel's office that he'd had four different extramarital affairs.

Next up for OpenAI will be to take on one the best players in the world at The International 8, in September. The firm has also been tweaking the neural networks, altering the bot team's in-game reaction time to near human levels, and helping it learn additional strategies. After the game 2 draft, OpenAI Five predicted a 76.2% win probability, and won the second in 24 minutes and 53 seconds.

Regardless, the OpenAI victory is incredible impressive, even more so because only a matter of months ago it was failing to beat amateur opposition. Despite the wealth of experience on the team, the humans could do little against the never-ending onslaught and precision of OpenAI, and they quickly lost in humiliating fashion.

During congestion, Essentials customers may notice speeds lower than other customers and further reduction if using 50GB/month. Most unlimited plans allow you at least 22GB of data before being throttled, while T-Mobile and Sprint hit the brakes at 50GB.

"It's hard to know what kind of progress you're making if you're just making progress in simulators", Jack Clark, who works at OpenAI, said in an interview with Axios.
