World’s Total CPU Power: One Human Brain | Wired Science |

Our total storage capacity is the same as an adult human’s DNA. And there are several billion humans on the planet.

To put our findings in perspective, the 6.4*1018 instructions per second that human kind can carry out on its general-purpose computers in 2007 are in the same ballpark area as the maximum number of nerve impulses executed by one human brain per second.

The above may be true, but computers, as opposed to humans, are always increasing their capacity and computational power. Furthermore it is easier to make a computer than a human being. It does make you think how things will be in … years (fill in the blank).
