Word:

speculative evaluation

(parallel)speculative evaluation - A technique used in parallel processing where some evaluation may be started before it is known whether it is needed (Eager evaluation). This may result in some wasted processing and may introduce unnecessary non-terminating processes but it can reduce the overall run time by making some needed results available earlier than they would be otherwise.

Opposite: conservative evaluation.
