Round-Random (Stochastic Rounding)
This may also be referred to as random rounding or stochastic rounding, where the term "stochastic" comes from the Greek stokhazesthai, meaning "to guess at." In this case, when the algorithm is presented with a "half-way" value, it effectively tosses a metaphorical coin in the air and randomly (or pseudo-randomly) rounds the value up or down.

Although this technique typically gives the best overall results over large numbers of calculations, it is only employed in very specialized applications, because the nature of this algorithm makes it difficult to implement and tricky to verify the results.
