Abstract

With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT), many newer possibilities of service provisioning are opening up. Truly Google like searching for objects in our daily life is not ruled out in near future. Towards this aim, we have proposed Approximate service provisioning in our previous works [18, 19]. In this paper we propose a model for such a service. We discuss briefly the notion and concept of approximate services first and then we elaborate on the ideas of achieving such a paradigm. Further, since we know that there could be enormous number of devices in the future and in particular in IoT, a centralized solution seems impractical. Thus, we throw some light on the use of distributed approximate service models in this article.
