Hey guys,

I'm going to give you an introduction on  *Approximate Programming*,

In contrast to exact computations, approximate computations aspire only to
produce an *acceptably accurate approximation* to an exact result for
benefits such as *increased performance and reduced resource consumption*.
Potential applications include machine learning, unstructured information
analysis and retrieval, and video, audio and image processing.

I will elaborate on this topic from the following aspects:

   - Background
   - Why approximate computation today
   - The state-of-the-art approaches
   - Existing problem and ideas on how to move on
   - Conclusion

Hope you can like it.
