Of course - even humans can suffer this at the moment. Try explaining how
the i925x chipset works (or something like that) to a non computer literate
50 year old - the situation where the brain cannot keep up comes around
Unless the person has reached the stage of understanding in a natural,
progressive way at their own pace it is easy to confuse them.
As the AI will be running millions of times faster than a human it will
probably asses that trying to explain things that it understands to humans
is a pointless exercise, and will go about finding other ways to do progress
more effecently than explaining them to humans (ie explaining to other AIs
or computers) IMO
