You might have heard of a little show called Game of Thrones.

The HBO hit is entering its eighth and final season, with fans all over the world wondering how it’s all going to come to an end.

Well, for students at the Technical University of Munich, the wait was just too much. Using artificial intelligence, they have predicted who will claim the Iron Throne at the end of the final season.

The students have developed an app that considers every detail about the warring families from all the available information online.

“We scraped the results from different Wiki pages and Wiki-like pages about the books and TV show and we took out data like gender and age of the characters,” explains student Christian Dallago. “We put all this together to train the algorithm to tell us when this character is going to die.”

You might think this is just a gimmick, but don’t be too sure. In 2016, an earlier version of the application built by previous students accurately predicted Jon Snow’s resurrection.

So who does the AI think will be crowned the ultimate winner? According to the technology, Daenerys Targaryen has the best chance of survival this season.

Well, there it is. You heard it here first. Maybe?

Game of Thrones returns to our screens on Sunday, April 14. The final episode will air on May 19, 2019. Don’t forget to come back and see if the students were right.
