Activation unit calculates the net output of a neural cell inneural networks.Backpropagation algorithmmultiplies the derivative of the activation function. Thats why, picked up activation function has to be differentiable. For example, step function is useless in backpropagation because itcannot be backpropageted. That is not a must, but scientists tend to consume activation functions which have […]

Last Change to This File: November 18, 1998 Neural networking theory shows that backprop networks can represent most reasonable functions as close as you like with linear output units and a single layer of non-polynomial hidden layer units, for instance see thearticle by Leshno, Lin, Pinkus and Schocken. There are however many activation functions that […]

The sigmoid function looks like this (made with a bit of MATLAB code): x=-10:0.1:10; s = 1./(1+exp(-x)); figure; plot(x,s); title(sigmoid); Alright, now lets put on our calculus hats First, lets rewrite the original equation to make it easier to work with. Nice! We computed the derivative of a sigmoid! Okay, lets simplify a bit. Okay! […]

Derivatives and Differentiation (mathematics) What is the derivative of logistic sigmoid function? , Graduate degrees in Applied Math and CS. To find the derivative use the Chain Rule. The derivative of exp(-a) is -exp(-a), the derivative of (1+exp(-a))^(-1) is (-1)*( 1+exp(-a))^(-2)*(-exp(-a)) = exp(-a)/( 1+exp(-a))^2 Note that exp(-a)/( 1+exp(-a)) = 1 – sigmoid(a), then the derivative […]

The Gudermannian is named after Christoph Gudermann (17981852). The Gompertz function is named after Benjamin Gompertz (17791865). These are two amongst several. Sigmoid functions find applications in many areas, including population dynamics, artificial neural networks, cartography, control systems and probability theory. We will look at several examples in this class of functions. A sigmoid function […]
