Artificial intelligence still can’t beat a team of competitive players. Until…

The game showed that people are still much smarter than the software in performing complex collective tasks. The game took place on the Dota 2 championship The International 2018 in Vancouver, Canada. Earlier algorithms several times won by a relatively weak team players.

Artificial intelligence algorithms, which competed with people, was developed OpenAI, a non-profit organization for the development of AI, funded by Elon Musk, Sam Altman and others.

Who is stronger in Dota 2: people or artificial intelligence

In Dota 2, two teams are fighting for territory on the map with two symmetrical sides. The game is difficult for programs AI, because it is complicated, requires teamwork and is revealed over time (thus complicating the evaluation of successful progress). During the match last night OpenAI Five showed some strange behavior. But overall, it performed adequately against the best players in the world.

Some noted that instead to rely on the screen, as does the human player, OpenAI Five uses the API. This means that the algorithm can instantly obtain additional information about the game. However, this does not detract from the impressive achievements of AI, even though he lost.
