Most Digits Of Pi Ever Calculated

Emma Haruka Iwao broke the world record for calculating the most digits of pie on Pi Day, March 14. Emma, a Google developer, worked for four months to find 31.4 trillion digits of pie. Not only did she break an impossibly confusing mathematical record, but she made it into a pun, too. Emma definitely gets points for style and for being the first person to use Google Cloud to calculate a pi record. She used 25 Google Cloud machines for her work, which makes sense considering she’s a Google Cloud advocate. Emma is the third woman to set a world record for calculating pi and the first person to break the record since 2016. The record was a lifelong dream of Emma’s, who had been using tech to calculate pi since she was 12.
