“Game of Thrones”Fans, do not want to know the end, now stop reading. Because computer science students of the Technical University (TU) of Munich, to my knowledge, who survived the deadly GoT: Daenerys Targaryen.

The students have developed an algorithm, to deaths commitments in the cult series before. Shortly before the Start of the eighth and final season, do you think it would be like this: The dragon lady, you grant a 99-percent chance of Survival. For the Hand of the king, Tyrion Lannister, the chances of survival, with 97 per cent very good. And also for Jon Snow, it looks not bad. The probability that he will go on it, is the algorithm that only 12 per cent. Worse it looks for Sansa Stark with a probability of Death of 73 percent.

The deaths of the 6. Season predicted

The students had created in a programming course applications that browse the Internet for data about “Game of Thrones” and recycle. In this way, can be calculated according to the University, the probability that a series character is expected to die next.

Two years ago, students had said the deaths of the sixth season of the series in advance, and explains how it works: Among other things, it plays a role in how many Deaths a character has in his relationship. Another risk-factor, gender is also. Men live in the GoT universe more dangerous than women. The resurrection of Jon Snow, the algorithm of 2016, had said, shortly before the Start of the sixth season,. However, it was said at the time: Daenerys Targaryen is going to die. Two years later, she goes to the computer scientists, is now the most likely candidate for the hotly contested iron throne.

The final season starts on the 14. April in Germany

The idea for the unusual investigation, Guy Yachdav, a Hardcore Fan of the series and leader of the project. “Many have written to us that the project is finally showing times, what you can do with machine Learning – finally, something different,” he said at the time. This Sunday (14. April) starts the final season of the Fantasy Saga. In Germany, the episodes will be shown a few hours after the US broadcast on the Pay-TV channel Sky.
