Would it be quicker if:
I see alot of talk about compression and that's gonna be needed don't get me wrong but wouldn't a quicker way to do this also be:
Have a number of "default" human templates, match the subject to the nearest one then just transmit what is different to that template? Yeah there maybe alot different but even if you said that 30% of the subject was the same it'd say you about the universes age in time; a nice head-start for the compression people.
For example if the machine was for transporting cars you would have 1 of every type of car loaded in then just transfer information like:
-Subject is red, not black like the default.
-Theres a dint on the drivers side door
-The rear passenger side indicator light has a loose wire that in about 20 days will lose connection.
Hell you could even say to the owner: "Give us £50 and I'll knock the dint out and fix your indicator you don't know is going to break yet enroute".
