Spoiler alert: computer science students at the Technical University of Munich have developed an algorithm that predicts Game of Thrones characters’ likelihood of survival. The project uses an app that scours internet forums and fan sites for data relating to Game of Thrones characters. Using longevity analysis similar to scientific studies that examine the effects of medical treatments, the students believe they are able to predict the likelihood that characters will die or survive in the final season.
Project supervisor Guy Yachdav said told CBS that the analysis “relies on data taken from the world of fantasy, the exact same artificial intelligence techniques are used in the real world.”
According to the students’ algorithm, Bronn is the most likely to die next with a 93.5 percent likelihood, followed by Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane (80.3 percent), Sansa Stark (73.3 percent), Bran Stark (57.8 percent), and Sandor “The Hound” Clegane (47.5 percent).
Daenerys Targaryen, on the other hand, has the highest chance of survival, with a 0.9 percent chance of dying. Chances also look good for Tyrion Lannister (2.5 percent), Varys (3.2 percent), Samwell Tarly (3.3 percent), and Jaime Lannister (4 percent).
