Nice argument! My main caveats are* Does training scale linearly? Does it take just twice as much time to get someone to 4 bits (top 3% in world, one in every school class) and from 4 to 8 bits (one in 1000)?* Can we train everything? How much of e.g. math skills are genetic? I think there is research on this* Skills are probably quite highly correlated, especially when it comes to skills you want in the same job. What about computer skills / programming and maths skills / science—are they inherently correlated or is it just because the same people need both? [Edit: See point made by Gunnar_Zarncke above, better argument on this]
That is a very broad description—are you talking about locating Fast Radio Bursts? I would be very surprised if that was easily possible.
