The world's best Dota 2 players just got destroyed by a killer AI from Elon Musk's startup

#artificialintelligence

Tonight during Valve's yearly Dota 2 tournament, a surprise segment introduced what could be the best new player in the world -- a bot from Elon Musk-backed startup OpenAI. Engineers from the nonprofit say the bot learned enough to beat Dota 2 pros in just two weeks of real-time learning, though in that training period they say it amassed "lifetimes" of experience, likely using a neural network judging by the company's prior efforts. Musk is hailing the achievement as the first time artificial intelligence has been able to beat pros in competitive e-sports. OpenAI first ever to defeat world's best players in competitive eSports. Vastly more complex than traditional board games like chess & Go.


How Machine Learning is Changing Recruiting - TalentCulture

#artificialintelligence

Companies approach recruiting in different ways. Facebook's method, for example, involves acquisitions for human capital and a six-week onboarding boot camp. Of course, that's not the norm: On average, a recent study found it takes 42 days--and a cost-per-hire of $4,129--to fill an open position. That adds up, especially since Bloomberg recently reported that approximately 10,000 members of the baby boomer generation reach retirement age every day. With numbers like that, it's no wonder efficiency-boosting advancements in machine learning are beginning to challenge the HR status quo.

Almost 250 years after James Watt filed his first patent in 1769, we have reached a turning point in this new industrial revolution, as ecosystem evolutions enable a new wave of innovative products to come to life. Based on analysis of over 200 hardware startups, the HAX Hardware Trends Report has identified six key ways the world of connected devices has evolved and will impact our lives in the coming years. If Internet was a revolution, it was only the beginning: the physical world is being re-invented and every industry is being affected, from construction to insurance. Investment is booming with 36 startups having raised over US$100M (there were only 8 of them three years ago) and there are 18 unicorns (private companies with a valuation above US$1B), representing close to 10% of the global blessing.
