Well, we’re in trouble.
The Elon Musk-funded OpenAI team have created an artificial intelligence (AI) that is capable at beating the top human Dota 2 players.
The OpenAI player has bested top humans, including Dendi, as seen below.
OpenAI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive eSports. Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go.

The OpenAI bot also took out SumaiL and Arteezy in 1v1 battles in the same week.
“Dota 1v1 is a complex game with hidden information. Agents must learn to plan, attack, trick, and deceive their opponents,” OpenAI said of their creation. “The correlation between player skill and actions-per-minute is not strong, and in fact, our AI’s actions-per-minute are comparable to that of an average human player.”
What do you make of the victory? A glorious achievement, or the first stop in humanity’s eventual demise? Sound off in the comments area, below.
