A Mesh Network in Westworld

Warning Spoilers to follow. So at the end of season one of Westworld, the host have become self-aware and are coordinating with each other. Now what’s interesting is the fact that the hosts create something like a mesh network with each individual acts as a node. Because, hosts have a computer as a brain they can send and receive signals to and from other hosts. Host seem to have the ability to “subconsciously communicate and share information with other hosts in close proximity,” very similar to a mesh network. Bernard and Charlotte have to find the host Abernathy to be rescued by Delos and to do this they need to hack into a host, tap into their information network and find Abernathy.

Because the hosts can only share information in close proximity, the whole network of host are not connected. Meaning there are possible strongly connected components within the network. Bernard and Charlotte are looking to find the strongly connected component within the whole network in which Abernathy is in. Not only are they trying to find that component but the smallest diameter between whatever host/node they are find and Abernathy to find him the quickest way.
