Experiments in Artificial Intelligence:Stickboy® Makes ‘Game of Thrones’ Predictions
The innovative minds at Stickboy® Creative in Fort Myers, FL, have developed an AI to generate predictions about your favorite “Game of Thrones” characters! Will your favorite character be dead or alive at the end of GoT Season 8? See what our deep-learning model thinks along with predictions from the Stickboy® development team.
AI Data Profile
- Characters Profiled: 916
- Book Pages Analyzed: 4,244
- TV Episodes Analyzed: 67
- Total Result Confidence: 70%
How We Did It
The Stickboy® team fed the AI extensive character and plot data to profile the various GoT characters. This data set was piped through a K-Mean clustering algorithm to group characters (both living and dead) based on perceived patterns and traits. These groups were then fed into a Bayesian inference algorithm to determine the probability of a character dying prior to the close of Season 8. The final AI model was tested against known dead and known living characters to generate predictions and confidence scores.
You Versus The AI
The Stickboy® team had fun during development and would like you to join the game! Please post your own predictions and see how you stack up against the AI!
