Team of AI have beaten humans at Dota 2 - OpenAI Five hopes to take part at The International Dota 2 championships in August

A team of five electronic neural networks are getting so good at playing Dota 2 that they have started beating amateur humans, according to a recent blog post from OpenAI. The bots have learned how to play the game entirely through self-play, and interestingly they work as a team. This was achieved through the implementation of a 'team spirit' parameter which tells the bot how much value to place in individual goals versus team goals. Each...

... and a Human Team got banned for using a mouse!

I won't tell ArenaNet I use a mouse in GW2. :lol:

Ah this was because they used a programmable mouse wasn't it? Seems a little harsh to me, but I suppose it makes sense to prevent this kind of thing getting out of hand.

I think they're taking part more to see whether they can beat really good players, I don't know if they would be eligible to win any money.

It's pretty impressive - these bots started off with totally random play, and have learned their own tactics. I guess we all do that to some extent :D

I suppose it's just the same as chess matches between AI and humans. Eventually AI got the upper hand and will now probably never lose it.

I don't know if they would be eligible to win any money.
The prizes would have to be Artificial Money. :p
