Background knowledge --- how much data do we need?

Do you mean 100 KB data as the background knowledge is enough for strong AI?
Are you kidding?

By the age of 1 year human baby parsed at least terabytes of information. And keeps in his/her memory at least many megabytes of information.

Do you think 1 year old human baby has strong AI with all this knowledge?

Yes, artificial intelligence could have advantage over natural intelligence. AI can be intelligent with less amount of info.
But not with 100 KB anyway.
100 KB is almost nothing for General Intelligence.
