Just to be clear, this is an order of magnitude figure only
For instance, Java programs tend to use substantially more memory than
memory optimized C programs carrying out the same function, by a factor that
hard to reduce below 2 even using extremely subtle engineering...
Philosophically, the main reason so much memory is needed is that a mind,
to create new ways of doing things with reasonable rapidity, needs to
experiment with many different ways of doing things. I don't think there is
clever way around this. Mind either takes a lot of space or a lot of time,
real-time-interactive nature of intelligence means that there's a limit to
how slow a
mind can be and still solve complex problems in complex environments.
