The world's best Dota 2 players have been defeated by a bot

The world's best Dota 2 players have been defeated by a bot

There is no doubt that the milestone achieved by the bot is astonishing, however, what's particularly impressive about this feat is that winning in Dota requires players to have an intuition about what their opponents are thinking about doing and then build a corresponding game plan accordingly.

OpenAI took the stage at the Dota 2 International Championship yesterday. Here's our list of the best Dota 2 heroes for beginners.

Stock markets lower, gold price continues to rise amid political tensions
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 204.69 points to close at 21,844.01, with Goldman Sachs contributing the most losses. Non-OPEC production will get a health check later today when the Baker Hughes U.S. rig count is published at 1:00 p.m.


In the live Shadow Fiend mirror match against Dendi, the bot executed an impossibly ideal creep block, perfectly balanced creep aggro, and even recognized and cancelled Dendi's healing items. Perhaps more significantly, while Ishutin was defeated in a 1-on-1 match, DOTA 2 is normally played by opposing teams of five players each. In the second game, after the AI scored a quick kill, Dendi threw in the towel, saying that the bot was simply "too strong!"

Engineers from OpenAI, which is backed by Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, explained that their bot earned a "lifetime" of experience after two weeks of real-time Dota 2 training against itself, eventually working up to go undefeated against other professional players, including Artour "Arteezy" Babaev and Syed "Suma1L" Hassan.

Muslim woman wins $85000 lawsuit after police remove her hijab
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on behalf of the woman identified as Kirsty Powell sued the city of Long Beach. Local news website ABC7 reported she had three outstanding warrants against her name, which have since been cleared.


The incident involving the Facebook AI system actually proves that AI is still far from perfection, as opposed to creeping closer to taking over the world. Was he indirectly comparing the OpenAI bot with AlphaGo?

The reason Dota 1v1 is considered a complex game is because the players must learn to plan, attack, trick, and deceive their opponents.

Russo Brothers announce they've started filming Avengers 4!
Among other sources, this seems to mean that they are already shooting AVENGERS 4 (title still unknown). Some think the four fingers are simply an indication that the fourth Avengers film has started filming.


OpenAI is trying to make sure that AI becomes a positive addition to mankind, as opposed to the horrific future portrayed in the Terminator film franchise.
