Two Minute Papers: OpenAI’s Bot Beats DOTA World Champion Dendi | Two Minute Papers #180

Some updates and clarifications follow:
Update 1: we seem to have conflicting information on the training times – both 24 hours and 2 weeks was mentioned. We’ll make sure to address this when the official paper appears.
Update 2: more from OpenAI – https://blog.openai.com/more-on-dota-2/
Update 3: more reddit discussion on how to trick the bot into defeat: https://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/6t8qvs/openai_bots_were_defeated_atleast_50_times/ (thanks to nikre for the link)
Update 4: an OpenAI employee provides more clarification on the training process – https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15001521

Apologies for the inaccuracies – I’ve watched every video and interview I could get my hands on and found quite a bit of conflicting information. I’ll take this into consideration next time when something comes up without an official research paper.
