My brother James and I were having an interesting conversation about AI and the C programming language. In the course of our discussion, we began to discuss larger and larger units of measuring storage and space. Fortunately, came to the rescue. Turns out a Yottabyte is a rather large amount of potential storage. A yottabyte is: 1) 1024 bytes. Of course, to be more accurate (we are in base 8 here, right?) 2) 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes In plain old english, a yottabyte is about 1 septilliion bytes.
