I suspect that bandwidth & latency won't have too much effect until the AI
has gotten quite smart. Because unless the research is very well funded
the AI probably won't be able to process the data faster than a typical
connection could deliver it anyway. Certainly, you would save a few
seconds here and there due to latency, but a couple of seconds shouldn't
make that much difference. Besides, this might provide time for the AI to
