We numerically compute the vacuum expectation value (VEV) of the BPS Wilson loop operator in 4 dimensional planar N=4 Super Yang-Mills theory. Since it is difficult to keep supersymmetries in the lattice theory, we use an alternative regularization based on an idea of the large N reduction. Using this new regularization, one can keep SU(2|4) symmetry which contains 16 supersymmetries. We perform a Monte Carlo simulation based on this method to compute VEV of circular and rectangular Wilson loop operators. We also compare the result with the gravity side to test the AdS/CFT correspondence.
