A Student-Created ‘Game of Thrones’ Algorithm Found Jon Snow’s Death to be a Statistical Shocker


A student-created Game of Thrones algorithm found Jon Snow’s death to be a statistical shocker

Students at the Technical University of Munich created a project, titled A Son of Ice and Data, to establish the likelihood of death of Game of Thrones characters. Among the findings: Tommen Baratheon has a 97% likelihood of death, Daenerys Targaryen has a 95% likelihood of death and Jon Snow has just an 11% likelihood of dying on the show. PLUS: The Freedom Of Information Act request on President Obama’s advanced screeners is being evaluated, Game of Thrones creators “spent good money” to make sure Jon Snow looked dead, inside the time-consuming White Walker-making process, and “Ramsay” and “Reek” shared a kiss during a visit to Jimmy Kimmel with “Roose Bolton.”
