Using ChatGPT, a Game of Thrones fan creates the final two novels in the series by George RR Martin.

With the epic television series Game of Thrones, which is based on his best-selling book series A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R. Martin captured Hollywood. The fantasy series, which gave rise to characters who are now well-known and to scenes that made audiences around the world gasp, is still unfinished, and readers and admirers have been waiting for the next book for more than ten years.

The final two novels of the A Song of Ice and Fire trilogy were written by GitHub employee Liam Swayne, who used artificial intelligence to create what many might consider unimaginable. He used ChatGPT to outline The Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring before guiding the AI to give each chapter Martin’s distinctive flair. Intriguingly, the AI’s story spares important people from death, which is unusual given how unpredictable character fate is in the series as a whole. Nevertheless, the AI project gives a satisfying and genuine-feeling conclusion.

The void left by the series’ unfinishedness is not only the result of time passing, but is also made worse by the contentious finale of the television version. The eighth season of Game of Thrones on HBO was a turbulent ride. Many readers who yearned for the in-depth description of Martin’s books felt let down by the swift storyline, which covered everything from the Night King’s assault on Winterfell and Daenerys Targaryen’s fall from favor to the unexpected ascension of Bran Stark. It is not exaggerated to state that fans have been waiting for resolution for a generation given that the original series premiered in 1996.

Martin, the brains behind Westeros and its convoluted intrigues, has infamously kept quiet about how The Winds of Winter is developing. A Dream of Spring’s ongoing production was alluded to in a blog post, but information about it is still as elusive as some of the series’ most mysterious characters. But it’s important to note that Martin hasn’t completely disappeared from the literary world. He also wrote additional stories based in the vast Westeros universe, most notably Fire and Blood, which HBO will adapt into the next television series House of the Dragon.

The long wait, while agonizing, is partially acceptable given that Martin’s most extensive book in the series is expected to be The Winds of Winter. The devoted followers’ hope, nevertheless, is about to run out. This interplay of protracted expectation and technological prowess is what has inspired people like Swayne to consider using AI as a possible means of a makeshift conclusion.

While there is discussion over the moral implications of using AI in this way, Swayne asserts that ChatGPT isn’t yet the best solution for a clear resolution.
This intriguing standoff is made possible by the unusual meeting of literature, fandom, and technology. The search for the ultimate Game of Thrones conclusion becomes a compelling story in and of itself because to George R. R. Martin, HBO, and the development of artificial intelligence (AI). It is unknown who or what will tell the grand tale. No matter where they come from, one can only hope that the concluding chapters live up to the epic that enthralled the world.
