Bill Gates says gamer bots from Elon Musk-backed nonprofit are ‘huge milestone’ in A.I.
The nonprofit OpenAI co-founded and backed by billionaire tech titan Elon Musk, has built a team of robots that beat a team of humans at the complex video game Dota 2.
#AI bots just beat humans at the video game Dota 2. That’s a big deal because their victory required teamwork and collaboration — a huge milestone in advancing artificial intelligence. The game is one of the most popular and challenging competitive video games ever. Playing Dota means you have to coordinate and focus as a team of five. The robot teams learn to play this game by playing against themselves, according to a statement by OpenAI. The robot team, OpenAI Five, is able to play 180 years worth of games each day, according to the statement.
