Hierarchical Graph Structure

HNSW utilizes a multi-layered graph structure where each layer is a graph of the data points. The top layers contain fewer points with long-range connections, and as you go down the layers, the number of points increases, and the connections become more local. This hierarchical structure allows for efficient navigation during search queries.
