The Non-Unified Theory of Approximate Computing
Nektarios Tsoutsos - Univ. of Delaware
This session deals with trading off computational accuracy and energy efficiency. The first paper explores a novel classifier-approximator architecture for approximate computing on a low-power accelerator. The second paper advocates a new approach based on stochastic computing to trade off accuracy and circuit level efficiency. The final paper advocates a theoretically-robust methodology for optimizing multi-output approximate logic.
