As ‘Game of Thrones‘ fans eagerly wait to find out who will finally sit on theIron Throne, researchers have developed artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to predict the survival chances of each of the characters in the last season of the hitHBOshow.
The newalgorithms developedat the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany predict thatDaenerys Targaryenhas the highest chance (99 percent) of surviving the harrowing world ofGame of Thrones.
The popularTyrion Lannisteralso has a promising 97 percent survival rate, researchers said.
An application scours the web for data about the show, then crunches the numbers using the algorithms to predict which character has the best chance to sit the covetedIron Throne.
Survival rates are predicted using longevity analysis — a technique similar to scientific studies that examine the effects of treatments and complications on cancer patients. The full list of characters and their survival chances arealso available online.
