Abstract: I will report on my joint work with Doron Zeilberger, about how
one can use experimental mathematics and symbolic algebra to measure
the irrationality of famous mathematical constants; in particular, about a new
world record for PI. There is still some room for a human touch, and this
involves some classical number theory (like "Freshman's Dream Identity")
and combinatorics of binomial sums. My talk will outline the story behind the
