The bot beat the Ukrainian player in two short rounds, who then conceded defeat.
But a new breed of ANNs called Adversarial Neural Networks pits the wits of two AI bots against each other, which allows them to learn from each other. The bot kept on playing until it reached the skill level of the world's best Dota 2 players, which took around two weeks.
Speaking in a video uploaded to the company's blog, co-founder and chief technology officer Greg Brockman said: 'Our bot is trained entirely through self play.'It starts out completely random with no knowledge of the world, and simply plays against a copy of itself, which means it always has an evenly matched opponent.' Bots have previously beaten human opponents at strategic games like Chess and Go, but this is the first time that a master player of a massively complex video game like Dota 2 has been bested.
In 2016, Musk said during a media conference that human beings may eventually need to add a digital layer of intelligence to our brains in order to prevent robots from turning us into 'house cats,' according to Business Insider.
'I don't love the idea of being a house cat, but what's the solution?
She's usually very tomboyish, but because she is brought in for fanservice, she usually looks exceptionally feminine and well-kempt, she's confrontational, and self-aware of her gender, with the need to mention it more often than she should.
Also common is for this character to have high skill in games, or at least higher than the misogynistic male characters, so she can promptly destroy them.
Musk took to Twitter to promote the victory, where he said: 'Open AI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive e Sports.
Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go.'Following the match, he also warned that advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) pose more of a threat to humanity than North Korea.'If you're not concerned about AI safety, you should be.
I think one of the solutions that seems maybe the best is to add an AI layer,' he said.
