Dota 2 International 2018 is just around the corner and with other interesting facts that are coming with this International one thing that seems to be the most amazing part is that in this TI, you will be going to witness a 5v5 match which will be in between a professional Dota 2 team and an AI team from OpenAI which is an independent research institute that was co-founded in 2015 by Elon Musk back in 2015.
The team named as OpenAI Five was preparing for this match and has self-taught itself every minute details of Dota 2 gameplay by practising 180 years worth of gameplay regularly. To achieve this performance the system requirements will give you a shock, to some extent as it needs 256 GPUs and 128,000 CPU cores. They are already able to defeat normal players and now they are trying to compete against a professional team at the international.
This event is going to be a huge one as earlier no other eSport games have been played against an AI and Dota 2 is considered to be one of the most eSport complex game. To get more details about how this has been processed for such a long time and what difficulties they have faced on achieving this is clearly explained over this post where you will get to know about the obstacles OpenAI team has faced.
