Elon Musk’s Dota 2 AI beats the professionals at their own game

August 14th, 2017

OpenAI takes on Dendi.

Last week was the high point of the Dota 2 competitive year: it was the week of The International, Valve’s biggest tournament. On Saturday, Team Liquid walked away with more than $10 million after defeating Newbee 3-0 in the grand final.

Right now, one of the requirements to be a good Dota 2 player is that you’ve got to be a living, breathing human. The game does include some basic computer-controlled bots to practice against, but any seasoned player of the game should have no trouble prevailing over these bots, even on their hardest “Unfair” difficulty (though the Unfair Viper bot is a legendary jerk that’s utterly miserable to play against). Last Friday, however, we got a hint of a new, altogether more threatening kind of computer-controlled player: an AI-controlled bot built by Elon Musk’s OpenAI. The OpenAI bot took on a number of professional players and it crushed them.

The OpenAI bot can’t play the full game of Dota 2. It can play only one hero, Shadow Fiend, of the game’s 113 playable characters (with two more coming later this year); it can only play against Shadow Fiend; and rather than playing in five-on-five matches, it plays a very narrow subset of the game: one-on-one solo matches.
