Emma Haruka Iwao, a Google employee from Japan, calculated pi greek for a new world record. Google announced the milestone on Thursday, March 14 Pi Day of the known (3.14). Iwao greek calculated pi to 31 digits Katherine (31,415,926,535,897), far exceeding the previous record of 24,600 billion set in 2016 by Peter turbidity. Pi the ratio between the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is an important foundation of mathematics, especially geometry, physics and engineering. 3:14, are the first three numbers, then pi is known, but the rest is endless. the number does not extend pleasant pastime. It is an extremely difficult challenge, since the sequence follows without fixed patterns. Mathematician James Grime says that only 39 digits of Pi is sufficient to calculate the circumference of the known universe and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of NASA only uses 15 digits interplanetary travel to calculate. Pi is used in many NASA activities, including landing on Mars, new habitable planets to discover and follow the movements of asteroids. Iwao found the number using Google Cloud in the Japanese city of Osaka, about 400 km west of Tokyo, where he worked as a developer and lawyer. The calculation has been completed in 121 days, with 25 virtual machines and took 170TB of data. To put that into perspective: 1TB holds approximately 200,000 songs. The Guinness World Records certificate Iwao the finish line Wednesday to put the third woman greek pi to calculate a world record. Iwao, he said, the more fascinated since he was 12 years old, says Google. “When I was a child, I have a program to calculate pi to download on my computer,” he says. “At that time, the world record holder had Yasumasa Kanada and Daisuke Takahashi, the Japanese are, so it was really relatable for me to grow in Japan.”
