OpenAI is an artificial intelligence research laboratory founded by Elon Musk. Four years ago at The International 2017, a project was revealed where the AI was trained to play Dota. Midlaner Danil 'Dendi' Ishutin would then face off against the AI in a 1on1 mid clash but was defeated. The bot was then further trained and eventually took down OG 2-0.
