Elon Musk’s Open AI
Open AI, The San Francisco-based company establish by Elon Musk, has been setting its AI bots against Dota 2 human players during The International 2018 this summer. Dota 2 is one of the world’s most popular E-sports. It is a global competition where 18 teams battle each other for the industry’s biggest prize pool.
Dota 2 is a complex video game. Players will feel worried about the game’s micro (scoring the last hit on minions or properly aiming their abilities) and macro (what’s happening in each of the game’s three lanes or the team’s bases) all the time. Unlike other classic games like Chess, Dota 2 is also consistently updated, means players must constantly relearn the meta to remain on top.
How Open AI analyzes human players
Also, the game ideal for testing how AI analyzes human players. OpenAI set five of its neural networks, or OpenAI Five, to take a shot at acing Dota 2 by playing 180 years of matches against itself every day. The neural network figures out how to play Dota 2 by giving a Long Short-Term Memory network (LSTM) to each of the 10 heroes in a match.
OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman noted that unlike human players, the bots have no ego when they play the game. The teamwork aspect of the bots also trained by allowing them to work individually at first, then encouraging them to work together.
Now the group needs to show that OpenAI Five can rival with the most elite. It plans to win against experts, however it hasn’t released details about the match.
In July, OpenAI will also host a match against top players. The International 2018 will run from August 20-25 in Vancouver. Open qualifiers closed on June 17, and regional qualifiers are ongoing. If you want other details, check Open AI, the international
