19 Records Broken By Women In 2019 (So Far)
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.
