An artificial intelligence has beaten one of the world’s top Dota 2 players in single combat today.

The two squared off in a pair of 1-on-1 matches in this multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game at The International, one of the biggest esports events in the world.

The first character who scored two kills or destroyed an in-game tower would be crowned the winner.

In the first game, OpenAI’s bot appeared dominant, and Ishutin appeared flustered by its capabilities.

It scored first blood against Ishutin fairly early on, and the two subsequently traded kills, crowning the bot the winner.

After the bot scored a kill on him early in the second game, Ishutin threw in the towel, meaning that OpenAI’s system remained undefeated against a group of top players, including Artour “Arteezy” Babaev and Syed “SumaiL” Sumain.
