Recently, a fan of Game of Thrones was fed up with waiting and has taken a stand on the matter, hence, he decided to train a neural network, AI to write a new book in the saga of George RR Martin (Game of Thrones).

An AI Has Written The Next Game Of Thrones Book

Fans of Song of Ice and Fire, which is as we know originally what we now call ‘Game of Thrones’, can rest easy. Despite the dire and constant omens that the saga will be unfinished if George RR Martin is not in a hurry and dies, they can read the sixth book, as long as they ignore it has been written by a neural network.

A fan of fantastic literature and Game of Thrones is fed up with waiting and has taken a stand on the matter: it has created a neural network in GitHub, has trained and taught the whole world of the saga and has put to work incessantly to write a new book.

It sounds very complicated, and it is really complicated. A neural network is a small artificial intelligence, one more limited than those that are planned to govern our mobiles and cars in the future; but still, can make certain decisions thanks to their algorithms that allow them to imitate the way a human thinks.

In this way, this neural network has managed to write five chapters of a new book of Game of Thrones. Sansa Stark is now Sansa Baratheon has appeared a new protagonist named “Barbaverde”, Varys has poisoned Daenerys and is dead, Ned Stark is alive, John Snow is a Lannister and mounted on a dragon, and most of all, Hodor has learned to speak normally. It is clear that the neural network needs more training.

Neural networks and artificial intelligence are the great technology of the moment and all big companies are investing in them or building them on their own. In a few years, they will be able to edit photos on their own, help in the diagnosis of diseases or drive cars for us.

This has made others very concerned about the matter, such as Elon Musk, who thinks they have to be regulated right now. They do not lack reason because the social network giant Facebook had to disconnect not long ago an AI because it discovered and communicated in a language of its own, but if a machine manages to finish a decent Book of Game of Thrones before its own author, perhaps the image that is had on them improve a lot.
