A good office lunch idea

Great idea for an Aldesko Office Lunch

Approximate Computing

An article doing the rounds recently on approximate computing:

Approximate computing is a computation which returns a possibly inaccurate result rather than a guaranteed accurate result, for a situation where an approximate result is sufficient for a purpose. Approximate computing is based on the observation that in many scenarios, although performing exact computation requires large amount of resources, allowing bounded approximation can provide disproportionate gains in performance and energy, while still achieving acceptable result accuracy.
