The gnu (or Group NUmber) function describes how many groups there are of a given order. The number of groups of each order are known up to 2047, see https://www.math.auckland.ac.nz/~obrien/research/gnu.pdf Has any progress been made on the number of groups of order 2048? This case is particularly difficult due to 2048 being a large power of 2. It is known that the number of groups of order 2048 of nilpotency class 2 is 1,774,274,116,992,170 (according to the above link), and apparently the full group number is expected to agree with this number in the first three digits.

12$\begingroup$ I didn't realise that this was the very first OEIS sequence! Also, though surely anyone already here will know it, a good time to advertise to anyone who doesn't know how many 2groups there are that 99.15% of the groups of order $\le 2000$ have order $1024$. $\endgroup$– LSpiceDec 30, 2019 at 20:07

$\begingroup$ @thomas not to be a nag, but is there something unsatisfying about my answer, since you haven't accepted it? $\endgroup$– Max HornFeb 7, 2023 at 13:46

No, it is unknown, and I don't think we will find it anytime soon. For the state of the art, see our 2017 paper "Constructing groups of ‘small’ order: Recent results and open problems" DOI (here is a PDF). I collected the known data on a little website for easier browsing. And am working as I type this on packaging it up for GAP.
