It's still not clear of AI is going to snatch all our jobs, but according to visionary and Tesla owner Elon Musk, an AI bot is definitely going to take away our e-sports supremacy.

"League of Legends" (pic) and "Dota 2" have dominated recent PC gaming revenues, says DFC.

Elon Musk reached to Twitter to reveal the cause of his excitement while he also compared the Dota 2's complexity with Chess and Go. At the event, the bot faced off against a number of professional players before playing Danylo "Dendi" Ishutin, one of the best players of the game.

But in between yesterday's games at The International 7, a special kind of bot showed off its advanced skills against some of the world's most well-known Dota players.

"It starts out completely random with no knowledge of the world, and simply plays against a copy of itself - which means it always has an evenly matched opponent", Brockman said.

Then, Brockman said, it was time to put the bot to the test at The International, which is Dota 2's world championship.

Before the battle kicked off, Dendi greeted the screaming crowd at Seattle Center's Keyarena, where the competition was hosted, wearing a hooded white robe and playfully boxing the air. "Our next step is to create a team of Dota 2 bots which can compete and collaborate with the top human teams", read the blog. And rather than attempt a third round, Dendi surrendered. The bot crushed Dendi. Afterwards, Dendi admitted he was surprised at how easily the bot beat a human player, adding that it felt "a little like human, but a little like something else".

Earlier artificial intelligence was won by players and fans. The fear of the AI system evolving into Skynet has since been debunked, but combined with the DOTA 2-playing OpenAI bot, we can't help but wonder what the future holds for the technology.
