Game of Thrones as a series is highly unpredictable and that is what has resulted in its popularity as the series creators keep the audience guessing. George R R Martin whose epic fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Snow which was adapted as the hugely popular HBO Series Game of Thrones have managed to keep audience retention for 7 seasons now and the loyalty is almost equivalent to the FRIENDS series. Now, scientists at the Central European University located in Hungary have taken up the challenge to predict how this season of Game of Thrones will expand. They have predicted using a mathematical model that Tyene Sand and Daenerys Targaryen are the most likely to not survive till the end of Season 7. GoT Season 7 made its audience sits up in awe when Arya Stark poisoned all the people of Walder Frey’s House in the opening episode.
Now, scientists have predicted that Tyene Sand and Daenerys Targaryen will be bumped off soon. Milan Janosov, Ph.D. candidate at Central European University said ”I am in all likelihood not alone in trying to figure out which one of my favourite characters will see the end of the season and which one’s won’t”. Keeping this in mind, the researchers have made a model of how likely a character is likely to die in a particular season, according to PTI. Milan Janosov said that he is trying to figure out the deaths of the characters on the basis of their social interactions. He said, “GoT is a complex world and social interactions are quite important, I quantified the social interaction patterns of the characters and predicted if they will survive or not using machine learning methods”.
As per PTI report, the scientists have created a network of the GoT’s social system. Each mode represents a character and the weight of the link between each character indicates the strength of their social interaction. Almost 400 nodes and more than 3,000 edges have been accumulated by the scientists. Also Read Game of Thrones Season 7 Has A Harry Potter Reference, Did you Miss It But Twitterati Didn’t
According to the study and prediction taken up by the scientists Tyene Sand, the illegitimate daughter of Prince Oberyn Martell is most likely to die, followed by Daenerys Targaryen who is in the quest of winning the Iron Throne. Grey Worm, Commander of Daenerys’s Unsullied Army will be the most likely third person to lose his life in this season. Arya Stark and the Hound are said to be in dangerous position. Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister have got a respite as both of them are in relatively safe position. As per the scientists’ calculations Cersei, Petyr Baelish and Theon Greyjoy will most probably survive the season. However, as we all know there is nothing predictable to George RR Martin’s story, only the subsequent episodes will tell us what is in store for the viewers and their beloved characters.
