Emma Haruka Iwao has been able to calculate the value of pi up to 31 trillion breaking the world record of 22 trillion with the help of Google cloud.
What is pi? you would have heard this question so many times time when you were in 6th grade. Answer of the same is that it is the value of a circle’s circumference divided by the diameter of the circle.
So about the value, we all are well aware of the value that starts with 3.14 and is generally denoted with the same. But most of us are also aware that the digits do not end here.
There are few of us that can take out the value until 4 or 5 digits but Emma Haruka Iwao, working in Google Japan was able to find out the value of pi up to 31 trillion digits. Isn’t the numbers stunning?
The woman who works in Google, with the help of Google cloud was able to break the last known record of the value which was up to 22 trillion digits.
It is believed that finding more and more digits in the value of pi is extremely tough as the same has no set pattern. Pi is an important element used by mathematics, physics, and engineering.
For years and years, mathematicians have been in love with finding more and more digits in the value of pi and no matter how many they find, the value will never end.
Emma who has been working with Google Japan says that she has been fascinated by pi since she was a young kid. She always wanted to work on it and she finally found a way how to.
It had not been a very easy task. It took her 121 days, 25 virtual machines, and 170TB of data for comparisons to complete what she was working on.
Emma said “I am stunned that I actually broke the world record. It was not an easy journey and I am still making efforts to adjust to reality. I am the one who broke the world record. Wow.”
