Students Have Developed An Algorithm To Predict Who Will Survive 'Game Of Thrones'
Possible spoiler alert: Students in Germany have developed an algorithm to predict who is most likely to survive the final season of HBO's 'Game of Thrones'.
Students at the Technical University of Munich have developed an application to predict which Game of Thrones character has the best chance to claim the coveted Iron Throne in the HBO hit medieval fantasy series about warring families.
They have taught the application to scour the web for information about each of the characters, which is then processed by artificial intelligence algorithms to assess their survival chances.

"We scraped the results from different Wiki pages and Wiki-like pages about the books and TV show and we took out data like gender and age of the characters," said student Christian Dallago. "We put all this together to train the algorithm to tell us when this character is going to die."
There is a good chance the application will get it right.
Back in 2016, an algorithm created by computer science students at the same university in the southern German city shortly before the start of Season 6 accurately predicted that Jon Snow would resurrect.
If you're still reading, clearly you're not a fan of plot twists and turns.
So here you go: AI says that Daenerys Targaryen has the best chance of survival in the final season.
Project supervisor Guy Yachdav said, "We think Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons, has the best chance of surviving the world of 'Game of Thrones' and therefore we think that she will win the Iron Throne and according to our algorithm we are 79 percent certain of that."
The full list of the project's predictions can be found here.
The final season of Game of Thrones begins April 14th (US).
