We are a few days away from the last season of Game of Thrones, and the forecasts continue to be confirmed.
Using artificial intelligence, students at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) now invest two cents.
At a recent seminar, these aspiring computer scientists created an algorithm that predicts which characters will survive and which ones will likely remain on the iron throne.
By browsing the Web for data on the hit TV show and its more than 2,000 characters, the algorithm website is a minefield for all fans.
Be warned, potential spoilers (and spoilers from previous seasons) to come!
Ready? Okay, let's go.
The character with the darkest perspective is Bronn, Tyrion Lannister's clever and dangerous keyword, although Gregor Clegane and Sansa Stark are not far behind.
With a 99.1% chance of survival, Daenerys Targaryen is clear and far ahead. According to the results of the algorithm, being a noble and, in addition, a married woman is a factor that plays in favor of the Queen of Dragons.
The analysis is so detailed that in all these categories, there are comparisons with the books, including the age of each of the characters, whether dead or alive and their likely life span.
It may seem far-fetched, but that kind of thing has already been proven. Before the broadcast of season six, the same seminar produced an algorithm to accurately predict Jon Snow's resurrection.
"While the task of predicting the survival chances of Game of Thrones characters is based on data from the fantasy world, the same artificial intelligence techniques are used in the real world and have a powerful impact on our daily lives. "explains the manager. the class mentor, Guy Yachdav.
In other words, it is not simply a practice of fanaticism. Survival rates for cancer patients and other medical treatments use longevity analyzes similar to those of the GOT predictor.
In a few weeks, we will know how accurate it is. And we are not prepared.
