TechInnovation – This high-performance computer just smashed a world record for solving a millennia-old math problem (ZDNet)

A team of Swiss researchers are claiming that their high-performance computer has added 12.8 trillion new digits to the number Pi, in a calculation that reached a record-breaking 62.8 trillion figures in total.  Based at the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons’s center for data analytics, visualisation and simulation (DAViS), the high-performance computer completed the Pi calculation with a precision of exactly 62,831,853,071,796 digits, smashing the previous record of 50 trillion digits achieved by Timothy Mullican last year.
