For all intents and purposes, they will be omniscient.
You underestimate how dumb humans are.. a few % of DNA separates us from chimpanzees. A few multiples of brain size separates us from earlier
The difference in intelligence between Einstein and a retarded person is actually not much. Not multiples, but less than 50%. That small gap in
intelligence is a gap that most people assume is massive. It's only massive relative to to the examples of intelligence we already have to compare
Anything smart enough to make it to Earth is going to have already begun making super advanced AIs on hardware literally trillions of times faster
than a human brain. The AI itself would be literally trillions, not 50%, of times more intelligent than us even without the speed advantage.
I say trillions because it's a huge number.. in all actuality, the difference will be even larger than that.
