What's "it"? You need to ask, "Consider this self-improving AI; does it have
enough information to discover X with infinite computing power?" I think that
*some* AI would be sufficiently ignorant that it would be an information-theory

What would it be quantified in? The number of facts? The size of the program?
Or are you asking James to provide the units as well?
