At Valve’s yearly DOTA 2 tournament - The International – an artificial intelligence beat one of the world’s best players in a pair of one-on-one matches. The bot, which is the work of Elon Musk-backed startup OpenAI, had already beaten some of the game’s top players before adding Danylo “Dendi” Ishuti to its list of conquests. Engineers said the AI mastered DOTA 2 by playing games against itself, called “learned bot behavior,” allowing it to acquire techniques like last hitting and raze faking.
