Next Game of Thrones Chapter Written with Deep Learning

George R.R. Martin probably has nothing to worry about — yet. But fans who’ve been waiting for years for a new chapter in the popular fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire — the basis for HBO’s Game of Thrones saga — are getting a little taste of what may be to come, thanks to AI. Zack Thoutt, a data scientist and developer, is using an AI system to help finish the novels. Fans have waited six years — with no official release date in sight — for The Winds of Winter, the penultimate book in the series, to be published. Martin is notorious for taking his time writing the books due to the many characters and complex plotlines.
