Dota 2, which is played by over 10 million people monthly is normally played between two teams of 5 players with the goal of collectively destroying a large structure defended by the opposing team known as the "Ancient", whilst defending their own. Not shockingly, Elon Musk was watching along and had some thoughts of his own, calling unregulated AI vastly more unsafe than North Korea. OpenAI's future plans include preparing their bot for the complete 5 vs 5 Dota matches.

The machines have won again: last night, OpenAI's Dota 2 bot beat Danil "Dendi" Ishutin at The International, one of the biggest eSports events in the world, and remains undefeated against the world's top Dota 2 players.

Dota 1v1 is a complex game with hidden information. Players control one of dozens of different characters with varying abilities, and compete to collect items and control territory.

Greg Brockman, himself, appeared to be impressed by the success of the method.

"We just let it play lifetimes of 1v1 against itself, and coached it on what we thought was good or bad", Brockman said in a video played before the match. Here's our list of the best Dota 2 heroes for beginners.

The billionaire said that when someone is interested in issues of level of safety using bots, now is the time to prepare.

"They're pretty very bad", one player said. And rather than attempt a third round, Dendi surrendered. Afterwards, Dendi admitted he was surprised at how easily the bot beat a human player, adding that it felt "a little like human, but a little like something else". "I need more time [to practice] I guess". "But it has no room for even slight mistakes", he wrote.

The Artificial Intelligence, as created by OpenAI, learned the gameplay all by itself, from the scratch.

In a subsequent tweet Brockman mentions that OpenAI is now working towards Dota 5v5 and is hiring. Right now, the company had just developed one single bot. "This required massive processing power".
