Add to it an even more complex element human emotions and it becomes a cobweb of algorithms. However, the human-made machines are now aiming to decode this very facet of human existence. But can artificial intelligence identify, and possibly treat, a condition as severe as depression based on your social media feed?
Artificial Intelligence bots defeating humans in games is not new. There have been multiple cases where AI bots have defeated world class players at games like Chess and Go. However, the Elon Musk and Sam Altman startup OpenAI, which studies artificial intelligence has managed to beat multiple world-class DOTA 2 champions in one-on-one games played recently. The DOTA 2 video game was developed by Valve Corporation and the event was one of the biggest eSports events in the world with many players and fans tuning in to watch the AI vs Human matches being played.
