AI Obliterates Semi-Professional Dota 2 Players In A Game

It turns out that they can be very effective at teamwork because it seems that the bots managed to beat a group of professional DotA 2 players.

Update: And that's game, with the AI victorious in two rounds out of three. A bot from OpenAI was taught to play Dota 2 with the help of machine learning, and it beat the world-famous Danil "Dendi" Ishutin in a one-on-one match at The International 2017. Heroes in Dota 2 often interact in complex ways. It predicted a 95 percent win probability after seeing the hero teams.

The Verge goes on to report that one of the things that was particularly impressive in the match-up from the AI perspective is its "inhuman" lack of indecision.

The latest victory for OpenAI Five is a positive step towards the firm's goal of competing against the best proteamat The International which is the largest annual Dota tournament in the world.

OpenAI is an artificial intelligence research organisation cofounded by Elon Musk which aims to promote and develop friendly AI. In preparation the bots played through 180 years' worth of games against each other every day.

In spite of the restrictions, though, OpenAI still completely dominated the first two games, through a combination of near-flawless coordination and a "play as five"-oriented playstyle".

The human team who took on the bots on Sunday were also granted new insight into their game. This resulted in OpenAI Five predicting a lower chance of winning of the match - just 2.9 percent, in fact.

The humans won the final game, but only after the audience was allowed to select the bots' player characters, which put them at a significant advantage.

Every member of Team Human were selected on the criteria of being within the 99th percentile of players, which makes sense considering that majority used to be active pro players. In one week of implementation, we crafted a fake frame for each of the 11 million possible team matchups and wrote a tree search to find OpenAI Five's optimal draft.

But OpenAI may be onto something with their Dota bots. "This reaction time is much closer to human level, though we haven't seen evidence of changes in gameplay as OpenAI Five's strength comes more from teamwork and coordination than reflexes".
