"The correlation between player skill and actions-per-minute is not strong, and in fact, our AI's actions-per-minute are comparable to that of an average human player". "Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go", Musk tweeted on Friday, referring to Google DeepMind's AlphaGo defeat of the world's best players in the ancient, incredibly complex board game. What OpenAI has learned with Dota 2 might just translate to other fields where understanding subtleties can be crucial to success.

The team behind OpenAI plan on extending the bot's capabilities with the hope it can compete in 5-v-5 matches at Dota 2 tournaments next year. Shadow Fiend isn't one of the heroes Dendi is notorious for playing, but he's still a top-tier player with the character regardless. OpenAI stated that its AI had been performing at the championship and it has already defeated the Pakistan-based gamer Sumail (the world's best 1v1 player), and Arteezy (the world's overall top player).

In accordance with the technical words of the company, Greg Brockman, the bot is able to perform the game of the enemy, and actively learn on their own. And rather than attempt a third round, Dendi surrendered.

He claims he was sacked after Swift falsely accused him of grabbing her and he is seeking up to $3 million in damages. Swift and Mueller are both expected to testify, along with Mueller's former boss and members of Swift's entourage.

Dendi later elaborated on Twitter that he found the bot "fun" and "challenging" to play against.

As they plan to explore the 5v5 Dota in the future, Elon Musk thanked Microsoft for use of their Azure cloud computing platform as it required massive processing power.

A video introduction for the bot showed various (human) Dota 2 players sharing their opinions on bots. "This is a step toward building more general systems that can learn really complicated messy and important real world tasks, like being a surgeon. the goal of OpenAI the company that we work at, is to insure that these really powerful systems are good and beneficial for all of us".
