Man v/s machine: A bot from Elon Musk's startup defeats the world's best gamers

One of the players and crowd favourite in the tournament Danylo ‘Dendi’ Ishutin, a professional, lost the game twice and forfeited any future games scheduled with the bot

A surprise segment introduced during this year’s The International—a Dota 2 tournament saw the triumph of a bot over a human for the first time.

A bot from Elon Musk backed startup Open AI defeated world’s best players of the game in one-on-one battle multiple times. Elon Musk celebrated the bot's victory in a tweet.

One of the players and crowd favourite in the tournament, Danylo ‘Dendi’ Ishutin, a professional, lost the game twice and forfeited any future games scheduled with the bot.

Astonished, he later said that the bot "feels a little like a human, but a little like something else".

Dota 2 is a complex and very popular game usually played between two teams of five players each. The objective of each team is to seize and destroy other team’s base. The game has 113 playable heroes to choose from and lots of potions and items which can enhance the abilities of each player. However, for this contest, the game was heavily simplified, which did not go down well with few of the fans.
