We have been experiencing several advancements in AI (Artificial Intelligence) development since many years. Games have turned out to be an influential grounding for AI.
The Dota 2’s best players are beaten by Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence bot. Now the AI will be known as a new best player in the world. Dota 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer online video game which is developed by Valve Corporation.
According to the engineers from nonprofit enterprise, the bot learned enough to beat Dota2 pros in just two weeks of real time learning, where he got a lifetime experience by using a neural network judging.
The bot beat world’s top Dota 2 players including “Dendi,” a professional mid-lane player.
Elon Musk celebrated this achievement in the area of artificial intelligence since it is the first AI that has been able to beat pros in competitive e-sports.
Dota 2 is a tough game, which is played between two 5-player team. The game features 113 playable heroes and all of them have separate controls and unique abilities, as well as dozens of items that can enhance and extend each hero’s capabilities. This means that the full extents of the game’s possibilities are virtually incomprehensible, at least to a player with human limitations.
Musk founded OpenAI as a non-profit enterprise to prevent AI from destroying the world. In fact, last month Musk told to a group of US governors that AI was “a fundamental risk to civilization.”
These kinds of achievement are more than just simple creativity for AI.The OpenAI group’s next plan is to extend its Dota 2 bot’s capabilities across the full game in a 5-vs-5 by next year.
