Zusammenfassung Approximate computing comprises a large variety of techniques that trade the accuracy of an application's output for other metrics such as computing time or energy cost. Many existing approximation techniques focus on loops such as loop perforation, which skips iterations for faster, approximated computation. This paper introduces ALONA, a novel approach for automatic loop nest approximation based on polyhedral compilation. ALONA's compilation framework applies a sequence of loop approximation transformations, generalizes state-of-the-art perforation techniques, and introduces new multi-dimensional approximation schemes. The framework includes a reconstruction technique that significantly improves the accuracy of the approximations and a transformation space pruning method based on Barvinok's counting that removes inaccurate approximations. Evaluated on a collection of more than twenty applications from PolyBench/C, ALONA discovers new approximations that are better than state-of-the-art techniques in both approximation accuracy and performance.
