Watch pro Dota 2 players take on an AI team

DOTA 2OpenAI destroys TI8 champions OG 2-0

Well, here's your chance to prove yourself against the Dota 2 bots that just defeated TI8 champions OG!

The OpenAI Five team beat human team OG 2-0 at a live event in San Francisco, the first time it had achieved the feat in public, having lost its previous public meeting with human competitors despite victories over other teams behind closed doors. Dota 2 is a real-time strategy game played between two teams of five players, with each player controlling a character called a "hero". However, it was not the same case for the OpenAI bots past year, where they were defeated twice by human professional players at the Dota 2 International Tournament (Ti8) in Vancouver. The matches were played in Captain's Draft mode, where each team can ban characters to prevent the other from selecting them.

All OpenAI Five bots have been trained on the same deep reinforcement learning techniques and are controlled independently through different layers of the same system.

The children, ages 8 and 3, were dead at the scene, although both parents, who were in the front seat, escaped injury, he said. Damage was reported early Saturday evening in Vicksburg, Mississippi, as severe thunderstorms rumbled through the city.

OpenAI becomes the first artificial intelligence to win against a professional e-sports team marking a significant milestone for the development of OpenAI. Registrants will be able to choose between a ranked match against OpenAI Five, a casual game with friends, or a single-player option allowing players to join teams that are a mix of humans and AI.

If you want to test your Dota 2 skills, you'll need to free up some time starting April 18 at 9PM ET/6PM PT; Arena will be open for three days, and you'll have to register here with a Steam account to participate.
