I think working on prime numbers is a nice hobby. I haven't read a lot about them (I'm not good at math), all I know they seem to be somewhat "random", although I don't believe they are. The way composite numbers are made up appears to be two types: divisible by two or made from a number of >2 primes in a certain way (some kind of prime sequence itself) where I think there is some kind of logic in that, but I don't yet know what.
Did I start a topic about this already? Can't remember..

If you're interested in learning more about prime numbers, https://projecteuler.net/problem=3 (https://projecteuler.net/problem=3) is a great place to start. A lot of the problems on Project Euler deal with prime numbers.

Are you referring to prime numbers or composite?

Krice, your topic is bot magnet, it seems ;)

AI wants to know the secret of prime numbers as well. It would be interesting to try to solve them by using AI, I guess? I think the key is in composite numbers and primes are actually the "boring" ones, a kind of completion of a cycle.
