Yeah, a surprise Elon Musk appearance anywhere means that some serious future science is about to go down. And his appearance over the weekend at the Dota 2 International came in the form of a fancy OpenAI bot that was able to beat one of the world's best players in 1v1 standard tournament rules.

Explained away by the bot's creators as "a step towards building AI systems which accomplish well-defined goals in messy, complicated situations involving real humans", you can probably guess where this will end up. Some sort of future where robots enslave humans to work in the laser mines on one of Jupiter's orbiting moons.

Anyway, until that day getting to see AI do its thing and succeed can be a lot of fun.

One interesting thing to note is that OpenAI's bot doesn't have some sort of crazy APM (actions-per-minute), as it's apparently comparable to that of an average human player. Very cool.

Next on the cards is building a team of bots to take on humans in a standard 5v5 round of Dota 2.

I dont really get it. Wouldn't the bot, even if it's APMs were limited to that of a human player, still have impossible reaction times? Being able to perfectly time the creep kills and gain gold superfast is a huge advantage.

Does it even matter if APMs are limited? In a game like dota it's not the APMs that matter but the accuracy/commands given at specific times.

Also it's Elon MUSK not MUCK.

Lol... a strange typo... fixed.

And you're spot on re APM... having perfect timing would be a huge advantage... and less of an intelligence thing.... but even so deciding when and how to react is still impressive
