Our brain can store 1 petabyte of data

Forget what you thought you knew about human memory, because a new study suggests that our brain’s capacity is 10 times larger than previously believed.

"This is a real bombshell in the field of neuroscience," Salk Institute for Biological Studies researcher Terry Sejnowski said.
 
"Our new measurements of the brain’s memory capacity increase conservative estimates by a factor of 10 to at least a petabyte, in the same ballpark as the World Wide Web."
 
That’s 1,000 terabytes. This finding suggests there may be as many as 26 categories of synapses, rather than just a few, as was previously believed.
 
This extra complexity of connections between neurons is what could result in a boost to the brain’s potential memory capacity. Researchers can use specifically this study for further work in the field of computers, creating advanced methods deep learning and neural networks.
