After Google's Artificial Intelligence AlphaGo beating the best human minds in the Go tournament, it is time for the next AI to beat the modern day gamers.
This one from Open AI - a nonprofit artificial intelligence research firm known mainly for its backing by serial entrepreneur Elon Musk, of Tesla and SpaceX fame - is a different story, and possibly a cautionary one.
Or, as Musk puts it, to ensure that AI doesn't grow unchecked and become the death of humanity. OpenAI CTO Greg Brockman said it took two weeks to train the bot, and it had previously beaten the world's top 1v1 player and the overall top-ranked player in the world. "This guy is really scary", Dendi kept saying, and at one point yelped "Please stop bullying me!" when the bot rushed at him aggressively.

Lorenzana did mention that his office would also ask the Department of Foreign Affairs headed by Sec. McCain sailed near disputed reefs in the South China Sea on Thursday.
The next big step for the project is to create a team of five that can compete against a full squad at next year's worldwide, according to OpenAI.
OpenAI says the bot was trained on self-play-meaning it started knowing nothing about the game, slowly learning which techniques worked and which didn't by playing a virtual version of itself.
The billionaire said that when someone is interested in issues of level of safety using bots, now is the time to prepare. The full game is traditionally played 5v5. Dota's complexity lies both in its programming, but also in the extremely high level of coordination, communication, and strategy required to play it at the highest level. In the future, it aims to develop a complete bot Dota 2 team.
