You have 1000 bottles of wine but one of them is poisoned! You want to find out exactly which bottle is poisoned. To do this, you have access to an unlimited number of prisoners that you can feed wine to. If a prisoner drinks from the bottle that is poisoned, they will die after 24 hours. Prisoners are also allowed to drink from multiple bottles. Assuming that the amount of wine and prisoners is unlimited, what is the least number of prisoners needed to identify the exact bottle that is poisoned within 24 hours?
