Big News About Human Brain Capacity
I feel smarter already. But is "iRobot" in our future?
A new study says the human brain has ten times more memory capacity than previous research has shown. Scientists at the Salk Institute say new research suggests the human brain is capable of storing one petabyte of data. salk.edu
How much is a petabyte ( insert joke here ) you ask? Turns out it's enough memory to store more than 13 years of high-definition video. It's like World Wide Web capacity! Study authors say the discovery could lead to a new generation of computers that would combine enormous processing power with low energy consumption.
I read the article about the findings by the Salk Institute scientists and after my head stopped spinning all I could think about was, "how come I can't remember sh*t"
