What mean "we", kemo sabe? At the present state of neuroscience, I
wouldn't be comfortable pinning that down even to within 3-4 orders
of magnitude. /You/ might be willing to upload yourself into a box
with 10 bits per synapse, but I wouldn't do it for under 1000 until
I saw proof. In fact, I'm not sure I'd even be comfortable quantizing
at /any/ level what is surely an analog process.
