The anomalous magnetic dipole moment of the muon can be both measured and computed to very high precision, making it a powerful probe to test the standard model and search for new physics such as SUSY. The previous measurement by the Brookhaven E821 experiment found a 3 standard deviation discrepancy from the predicted value. The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab will improve precision by a factor of four through a factor of twenty increase in statistics and a reduced systematic uncertainty with an upgraded apparatus. The experiment will also carry out an improved measurement of the muon electric dipole moment. Data taking at Fermilab has started and a statistical accuracy comparable to the BNL one is expected to be collected in a few months.
