OpenAI Five Dota 2 Bots Beat Top Human Players
10 August 2018, 03:19 | Casey Mitchell
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.
Yellow Warnings Issued As Heatwave Grinds To A Halt
Ms Diamond said: "This means there is an increased likelihood of warmer-than-average temperatures and below-average rainfall". Bookmaker Ladbrokes said the United Kingdom could still see 35C at least once this week before the heatwave ends.
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.
Persied meteor shower peaks this weekend
The Perseid meteor shower may be an annual event, but it's such an exciting celestial show that it's always worth another look. As meteors enter the earth's atmosphere they leave streaks of light in the sky, which some people call shooting stars.
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.
The Oscars Adds a Brand New Category for "Popular Films"
Which is a huge bummer for those of us who used to tune in exclusively to see who'd win the award for Best Costume Design. I hope that they will also think about what a big deal a new category is for the Academy and to that I say BRAVO to them.
"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.
