Computer Predicts “Thrones” S8 Deaths

Though we’re about a year away from knowing how HBO’s “Game of Thrones” will end, speculation will continue to run rampant about which characters will survive and which won’t by the time we leave Westeros.

Today, The Wrap reports that a scientist at Boston-based company DataRobot has crafted an algorithm which has crunched the numbers and predicted the most likely candidates to die in the upcoming eighth and final season.

Looking at approximately 2,000 detailed profiles of characters taken from A Wiki of Ice and Fire, the results are as follows:

Daenerys Targaryen – 83.77% chance of death
Jaime Lannister – 72.91% chance of death
Tyrion Lannister – 70.76% chance of death
Bran Stark – 66.02% chance of death
Cersei Lannister – 60.39% chance of death
Jon Snow – 58.99% chance of death
Euron Greyjoy – 54.95% chance of death
Sansa Stark – 50.28% chance of death
Arya Stark – 49.04% chance of death
Gendry – 39.87% chance of death

We’ll know just how right the modelling and algorithm is when “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO in early 2019.
