## 23 Feb the meaning of hexagonal

Why did I select hexagonal? There are many symbolic meanings behind a hexagon. The most obvious use of a large community of hexagons is the bee, much like a vast amount of components making up an AI. The hexagon’s solid strength in structures and the efficiency in saving time and energy – a characteristic of AI.

One of three definitions of hexagonal, according to Merriam-Webster is, “relating to or being a crystal system characterized by three equal lateral axes intersecting at angles of 60 degrees and a vertical axis of variable length at right angles.” In looking at other examples of the mathematical value of a hexagon, taken from this website, “Game of Hex was invented by John Nash in the 1940s. John Nash was an American mathematician who made fundamental contributions to game theory, differential geometry, and the study of partial differential equations. While he wasnâ€™t focused on economics per se, his findings were widely used there and he ultimately received a Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.”

The main reason I chose a hexagon was the infinite amount of connections hexagons can make in an intricate network of components. If AI is ideally about creating human like intelligence, then hexagons are a perfect representation of this.
