Do you think this method to represent π makes logical sense?

From the article.

Finding the correct number and combination of these parameters to reach close to the exact value of π rapidly has been a challenge.

It makes no logical sense to me.

As Laurie AG Quoted: "Finding the correct number and combination of these parameters to reach close to the exact value of π rapidly has been a challenge."

Since when is there an "exact value of π"?

π is a transcendental number and has no exact value, as any mathematician knows. It has been calculated to over 105 trillion digits but there are an infinite number remaining that we do not know anything about.

I have no idea what these people at the Indian Institute of Science are claiming, but for sure the claim of "getting close to the exact value of π" is bogus.
