Note that we don’t need to compete with any kind of “best possible” memory system. We to:

  1. Compete with the benchmark AI.
  2. Remain corrigible.

For [a] the plan is to co-opt whatever mechanism the benchmark AI uses to decide what information to store. This involves some subtleties, since we need to construct a benign analog, but it doesn’t require anything like knowing what computations we’d want to run in the future or which cognitive architecture we will adopt in the future.

For [b] the demands on memory seem quite weak. Probably we could get by with no memory at all.
