Esport pro players crushed by Elon Musk’s OpenAI Bot

There is a new pro in competitive e-sports, thanks to Elon Musk’s startup, OpenAI. This robot has learned enough in two weeks to beat Dota 2. Engineers claim that in this robot’s two-week learning period, it contained more knowledge than lifestimes of experiences. In previous attempts, this nonprofit used a neural network in order to train the bot with real-time learning, however, this is the first time AI has taken the victory over competitive e-sport pros.

Dota 2, a game with extreme complexity, has seen pro, Danylo “Dendi” Ishutin please crowds for quite some time. This game features 113 ‘heros,’ each possessing unique capabilities. Countless items in the game can enhance and extend each hero’s skill capacity. Two teams of five players each, compete in destroying the opposing team’s base. The possibilities in this game are inconceivable to the human imagination. Once Dendi was crushed twice in a 1-vs-1 match, he decided to forfeit any forthcoming matches, claiming that the robot’s movements appeared eerily human.

Musk has been active in taking precautions against artificial intelligence, as he fears it could someday destroy civilization. The OpenAI team is investing to prevent this from happening. The team’s intention is to now broaden the competence of this robot so that by next year’s Dota 2 tournament, it can compete in a 5-vs-5 match.

This and related hot issues in esport will be discussed at SiGMA this November. One of the panel discussions will, in fact, be entitled: Foresight 2030: esport, sports betting and AI. Esport and sportsbook are miles apart today but what will happen in five, twenty years from now? The limited barriers for esport to spread in popularity as well as the cost of producing esport champions vs traditional sports champions will be discussed.

The full agenda for all conferences can be found here.

Relive the highlights and stay tuned for this year’s SiGMA. Watch out for what we’re branding as the ‘iGaming Village’ this year.
