When you play the game of thrones, you win, or you die. Mostly you just die.
Fans have found themselves devastated every season when more and more of their favorite Game Of Thrones characters have been killed off left and right. But one heroic Boston man is trying to spare the fans' feelings this upcoming season.
Taylor Larkin, who works for the Boston-based DataRobot, wrote an algorithm (the text is available here) that tries to predict who will kick the bucket on this upcoming (final) season.
And the results? Well. Everyone dies.
Here is what the algorithm predicts:
It will be aggravating if *someone* doesn't kill Cersei, but at the same time it wouldn't surprise me if she outlived everyone.— SaintsGrrl (@SaintsGrrl) May 9, 2018
Of course, one of the most distinct things about the popular television series is that absolutely NOBODY can predict when their next favorite character is going to die. In the middle of one of the seasons, a few major characters were killed off in the "Red Wedding" plot line. At any moment, another similar event could take place. So how reliable is this algorithm, really?
Well, it will be one hell of a finale for sure.
