Elon Musk's OpenAI Just Slaughtered One of the World's Best Dota 2 Players

A special exhibition match was held between Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin and a specially created AI bot from OpenAI, which is funded by Elon Musk

The Dota 2 tournament, hosted by Valve each year, represented the “shame of a lifetime,” for one eSports professional. During this tournament, a special one on one exhibition match took place between Danylo “Dendi” Ishutin and an AI bot that was specially created by the artificial intelligence startup, OpenAI, which is funded by Elon Musk. In the world of eSports, this was the ultimate battle of man versus machine.

Dendi is considered one of the best Dota 2 players from all around the world, but was systematically dismantled by the AI bot. After just two weeks of learning and refining its skills, the bot was able to gather enough data and information to overtake one of the most renowned pros in the arena. AI technology learned how to overtake the best player in the world in just 14 days, which came as a shock to many in the gaming world, as evidenced in forums and articles.

Elon Musk is the chairman and co-founder of OpenAI, which is a non-profit research company that is diligently working to build safe and effective artificial intelligence and to make sure that the benefits of AI are as evenly and widely distributed as possible. The recent competition against the Dota 2 player demonstrated the effectiveness and capability of the technology being developed and used.

Best known as the CEO and co-founder of Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), Elon Musk has continued with innovations in technology that is unmatched today. In an effort to keep up with what he is doing and new creations, Muskwatch was created by Nerdist and airs on Tuesday’s on YouTube.
