Pi, a new world record of accuracy set by Google
A Google employee has created a new world record calculation of Pi, reaching a precision of well 31.415 billion, 926 million and 535.897 digits. The previous record, registered in 2016, he would stop and just 22.459 billion. The record, certified by the Guinness book of world records, has been announced today, Pi Day (in the USA on the 14th of march you write 3/14, that's OK, for we will not take a lot of sense, but it gives us the delights of a nerd as this and the Star Wars Day, may 4 or May the Fourth...).
Emma Haruka Iwao, the leader of the team that accomplished the feat, says you have used y-cruncher, the same program used for the previous record (you can download it for Windows and Linux from the official site), running it on a cluster composed of 25 virtual machines on the Google Cloud. The calculation has required 121 days of processing uninterrupted, more than 20 only for testing; on the whole, they were moved about 170 terabytes of data.
