HU­MAN HARD DRIVE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BIT RATE -

They say the hu­man brain is the great­est com­puter ever. So how many megabytes would the brain be able to store? Be­tween 10-100 ter­abytes is the es­ti­mate of com­pu­ta­tional ex­perts, ac­cord­ing to a re­port in SlateMagazine. One TB is equal to around 1,000 GB. There are about 100 bil­lion neu­rons in the brain, each ca­pa­ble of a thou­sand data points. But ex­perts say this is only a rough cal­cu­la­tion, with a lot of as­sump­tions about neu­ron ac­tiv­i­ties.
