2 Cents: Pi Record

Central PA Live

What better way to celebrate today than with a record?

Emma Haruka Iwao is a Google employee based in Osaka, Japan.

She recently set a Guiness record for calculating pie to the most number of digits.

If you remember back to Math class, Pi is 3.14 and continues indefinitely.

It took four months and 25 Google Cloud Virtual Machines to calculate pi to more than 31 trillion digits. The previous record was set in 2016 with just over 22 trillion digits.
