OpenAI Bots Thrash Team Of Dota 2 Professionals

OpenAI Bots Thrash Team Of Dota 2 Professionals

They are so well-coordinated and focused on teamwork that it was almost impossible for any of the human players to single a bot out.

The OpenAI Five, which has previously given amateur Dota 2 players the runaround, formed a team of five bots and was pitted against semi-professional players and still managed to wipe the floor with them. In the third game, human players secured a win.

After OpenAI took down members of the audience easily during a warmup round, the bot network started and finished the first of the two matches strongly, stopping its human opponents from destroying any of its defensive towers.

The company used machine learning to train bots to play Dota 2 and continuously improve their performance.

This Sunday, OpenAI bots defeated former Dota 2 professionals and top Twitch streamers, gamers who fall into the 99.95 percentile of skilled players around the world, taking in 2 out 3 victories!

That could be quite an ask as some professional players have an instinct for Dota 2 that is arguably hard to teach - AI systems are excellent at learning straightforward things or specific tasks but asking them to think generally and instinctively is another level. This was an implemented as an extension of adding a win probability output to the neural network to introspect what OpenAI Five is predicting.

Dota 2 is available now for PC, Mac, and Linux. Playing against bots and one mistake could cause end of the match. Next step, is The International 2018 (T18), which is Valve's own Dota 2 major and considered one of the biggest e-sports tournaments in the world. 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. Apparently, the five-on-five bot team has been in development all year, but this was the first true competition against real professionals.

That being said, it should be noted that on the OpenAI's website, they admitted that the game was not your standard DotA 2 game as there had to be certain modifications made to how the game was run.
