I don't see (prior to birth anyway) where more information comes from.
If you don't have other information input, then a zygote is a NI (natural
intelligence) seed. I can't think of an AI researcher in the world who
would not be *delighted* with an AI that had the potential of a baby.
If you look at it in this light, then the information content of a seed AI
with human level potential should not be more than the information content
of the human genome and is probably a good deal less.
It just a question of bits, of course the question is *which bits.*
