When their hive is under threat from a parasite, honey bees practice social distancing - link
Honey bees have fewer than a million neurons, and probably about a billion synapses (link
), and yet they display an absolutely incredible set of behaviours.
LC0 (Leela Chess Zero) typically uses a NN of around 130Mb, and without search (static evaluation) achieves a rating of something like 2300.
I am convinced that, right now, NN training is strongly sub-optimal: obviously I have no proof, but I believe that it's possible to do a very good evaluation with an evaluation function that's a lot smaller than most people think would be possible right now.
