Approximate Classifiers with Controlled Accuracy
MetadataShow full item record
Performing exact computations can require significant resources. Approximate computing allows to alleviate resource constraints, sacrificing the accuracy of results. In this work, we consider a generalization of the classical packet classification problem. Our major contribution is to introduce various representations for approximate packet classifiers with controlled accuracy and optimization techniques to reduce classifier sizes exploiting this new level of flexibility. We validate our theoretical results with a comprehensive evaluation study.
