Musk is hailing the achievement as the first time artificial intelligence has been able to beat pros in competitive e-sports.

Today we played Dendi on mainstage at The International, winning a best-of-three match. "Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go", tweeted Musk.

OpenAI, the non-profit organization co-founded by Elon Musk in 2015 with a mission to build safe AGI, and ensure AGI's benefits are as widely and evenly distributed as possible; has recently developed a bot that could beat the best in the popular cult game Dota 2 in one on one matches under standard tournament rules.

In an accompanying blog post, OpenAI published that its bot has been undefeated over the last few days in Dota 1v1, a "complex game with hidden information [in which] agents must learn to plan, attack, trick, and deceive their opponents".

According to the OpenAI website, their bot has taken down SumaiL and Arteezy as well, the two Dota players best suited to facing off against a bot one on one. "The correlation between player skill and actions-per-minute is not strong, and in fact, our AI's actions-per-minute are comparable to that of an average human player". In the meantime, the company said it will soon let anybody play against the bot. The next step, Brockman added, was training the bot to play as five players at once, and take on a full team of professionals.
