The Typical Student team learned more details about that. 


Methodology Behind The Prediction Algorithm




Guy Yachdav, the project supervisor at the Technical University of Munich unveiled the scientific methodology behind the algorithm. According to what he said, the survival rates prediction is based on the "longevity analysis similar to scientific studies used to examine the effects of medical treatments." He commented that despite the analysis solely "relies on data taken from the world of fantasy, the exact same artificial intelligence techniques are used in the real world."

Will Daenerys Targaryen Survive Till The End Of Season 8?




So, according to the prediction: 

  • Bronn has a 94% chance of becoming the next one to die. 
  • Ser Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane has an 80.3% of dying. 
  • Tyrion Lannister, Hot Pie, Samwell Tarly and Lord Varys have much better odds, with a 3% percent chance of dying. 
  • Finally, Daenerys Targaryen has a 1% chance of dying. Chances are she might survive until the end of season 8.
