Why haven't you calculated pi to 31.4 trillion digits /g/?
good for him
Did it to 31.5 trillion digits but I didnt want to brag
That'll be very useful for my picompress algorithm
give my an access to their cluster and terabytes of RAM and storage and no issue
Is that a guy or a girl?
>>70166502It says employee. Not employa. So it's a guy.
because you only need like 20 digits max for more accuracy than you could ever need
>>70166408>Google computer calculates pi to record 31 trillion digitsFTFY
>>70166408they only published an article about this because he's non-white
>tfw calculated every digit of pi
>>70166502I wouldn't care as long it has a dick.
>>70166408Maybe they should try working on software instead of having trannies count useless digits all day.

>>70166559ima stupid, does pi actually end or is it infinite?
What is the point in doing this?
>>70166839what the fuck are you talking about
>>70166850infinite, non repeating
>>70166854It's basically the supercomputer way of saying you have a higher FPS
>>70166850It's transcendental it can never, in any way be expressed exactly in a finite amount of digits using normal numbers
how do we know there isn't any mistakes or made up numbers
>>70166950>pi_to_ a trillion = [rand.randint() for range (1, a fucking trillion)]MMMMMHHHHH
>>70166865>>70166933why though? circles arent infinite, once you get to 3.141blahblah why does it that number carry on? i think it probably does end but scientiests are too embaressed to say it does cause theyve been calling it infinite for so long
>>70166950don't say stuff like that, people glow a lot around here.
>[W] Women Technologywhat did he mean by wearing this shirt
heh thats real chump stuff kiddo. all you need to do is buy a longer screen so its big enough to see the full digit by using node.js's pi function to do the calculation.call me when youre actually being paid. im out.
>>70166977then why don't you try it yourselfcircumference/diameter
>>70166977pi is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter. the ratio is irrational (therefore infinite) but scientists really dont give a fuck past the 10th digit. the only people who really care if pi is infinite or not is esoteric mathematicians and even then its a question of interest more than one of necessity
>>70166502>>70166518It says employee. Not employé. So it's a girl.
>>70166408Wow. I usually just punch in 3.14159.What an impressive accomplishment using google resources to churn digits over enough time. Truly an inspiration to us all to pick ourselves up by our own bootstraps.

>>70166977Circles ARE infinite, at least in theory. It's impossible to create a perfect circle precisely because a perfect circle is infinite.

>>70167561Stop playing stupid. Atoms don't have definite positions.
>>70167588I'm saying you can't make a perfect circle IRL because they're infinite, and you can't make anything infinite. Even if you use a compass, if you look close enough you'll have a definite number of sides, even if they're fucked up, wiggling atomic lines.

>>70166977pi literally just means a circle doesn't have any cornersif pi repeated, then you'd have an error since circles don't have multiple sides

>>70166977It's just computational power dickwaving more than anything else. With about 15 or 20 decimals you approach approximation errors for double floating types, so it doesn't make any sense to calculate or memorize more.

>>70171242what the hell is "common core"?
>>70166408I find this hard to believe. Did he just use a better calculator than everyone else? It would probably take a life time to write that many digits. So who fucking cares if the man didn't actually do it?
31.4 trillion digits is 32 terabytes of raw data. Unless you're throwing drives at it the only way to calculate that high is to stream the result, deleting what had been already calculated to prevent the system from running out of memory. In which case, why did he- she- it- shit, whatever it is stop? Let the program run overnight, you'll keep BASH's buffer full and the results won't be saved but you'd pass up 31 trillion in no time.
I would just copy and paste the record calculation, calculate a few more digits to hide my trail, and just RNG the rest. Nobody would bother verifying.

>>70168273>You can't draw a circle in GIMP shut the fuck up retard
Well, most answers here are quite smart. But considering that pi is infinite because making any circle just means to add more corners to something circle like, and pi is longer the more corners (and the circle more circlely) we add.And atoms actually are not circle shaped. Doesn't that mean that circles as we understand them don't occur in the universe? Just quantillionagons ?
>>70173565>do circles not occur naturallyyeah, they don't, just polygons with small corners, or ellipsoids with lots of small bumps

>>70166408Lol transexual chink man
>>70166408My CPU melted.
>>70167588That is yet to be determined. Some people believe that everything is eventually quantifiable but we have no methods to measure the smallest quanta. Personally, I believe that the universe "wraps around" onto itself, so it effectively has no inner limits, and because measuring is a physical process, we change whatever we are measuring, meaning that we could never precisely define any limits to our physical universe through observation.A circle has an infinite number of points which create it's perimeter. Any point along it's perimeter is an equal distance from the center of the circle as any other point on the perimeter to the center. This is what a circle is. Compare that to a square which is made up of exactly four equally distanced points.A circle is an imaginary shape. There is no observable circle known to man in the entire universe. Even a circle drawn perfectly with a protractor is not actually a circle when examined with a microscope. No atom in existence is a circle (or sphere) and no subatomic particle can be measured accurately enough for us to determine the shape.
>>70166850in practical terms, there's no need to calculate it beyond 30 digits or so, because at that point the size difference would be smaller than an atom.in theoretical terms, no.
>>70166408Because there's no point.
>>70167751Atoms do have shapes, and their shapes were even predicted before we had the technology to confirm their shapes. Because of the nature of quantum particles we cannot describe the exact shape of an atom at a point in time, we can only define the shape using probabilities. Anyway, the way that the nucleus and the electron cloud all "stick together" is somewhat specific for each isotope, and elements with more subatomic particles have more possible "shapes." They are definitely not perfectly round or spherical though. They are more like lumpy jiggling things surrounded by electrons and no part can be pinned down but we can map out possible locations. You can find old black and white recordings of Richard Feynman drawing all the possible shapes of a hydrogen atom on a whiteboard. When a physicist says a particle is spherical it's kinda like saying the Earth is spherical. From a very fuzzy perspective the earth looks spherical but with any precision you quickly find that it isn't.
It's not even a cute trap baka head
>>70175156I'll counter/concur with that by saying, man is an analog being and exists in a state that requires and is dictated by the impossibility of the perfection of the circle but is driven to perfect and quantify said circle. It's the natural state of a mass absent outside forces, so the mere existence of an observer modifies that force... which to me sums up consciousness.

>>70166408It's not impressive, more like meh. There are formulas for nth digit of pi, you just write like ten lines of c and leave it spewing out the digits. You don't even need that powerful a computer. If your school kid son did it, you could be proud. If you're a Google employee - not so much.
>>70166408>google employeeIs this what we replaced aristocracy with?
>>70175172if you define "practical" to be for physical purposes, then sure, but a number that doesn't end and doesn't have a known pattern is super good for computing applications.
