Game of Thrones has entertained us on our television sets since 2011 and, after a 2-year wait, is back on for the final season.
The show has been notorious for killing off characters unexpectedly and most fans already have their predictions in place regarding the series-old question: At the end, who’s going to survive and who’s going to die?
In order to answer this question, a team comprising of Computer Science students at the Technical University of Munich have used machine learning to predict the survival rate of every GOT character.
The team gathered their data primarily from GOT-based Wikis and used a couple of approaches, i.e. Bayesian Inference with MCMC methods and a Neural Network approach, to create prediction models.
Disappointingly, Needle-wielding Arya has a 57% chance of surviving Season 8, while Cersei’s chances of survival are pretty high at 95%. Bronn, even with his wicked wit, is the most likely character to die with only a 6% chance of survival.
