During TI7, we saw the first time OpenAI was played against a human being. Dota 2 is a very complex game and its probably much more complex than GO with its variable factors, no set rules and the choice of decision. A single decision can have thousands of outcomes depending on various permutations and combinations. When openAI was able to play a 1v1 in Dota 2 with dexterity, the community commented on how Dota 2 should be a 5v5 game. A 1v1 does not truly exemplify the details and the complexity of the game.
So in what may not come as a surprise, Open AI might just be preparing itself for a 5v5 competition during this year’s International. The match, if true, will be a moment in history in the development of Artificial Intelligence.
When people at OpenAI say “we’re playing well” they mean the human team, except the Dota programmers who mean the AI team… pic.twitter.com/ox1bkDpf5H
