Textbook test for AI theory

Textbook test/paper test: so my question for Robin Hanson is, once you have a complete theory of AI, how many pages of text does it take to describe that theory in sufficient detail that a team of human programmers can build the AI in less than a year (i.e. not including any of the data that the AI will use to learn from)?

I feel like Eliezer would say it fits in a couple of pages, and Hanson would say it's going to require many books (possibly thousands) to store all the insights.
