An Overview of Activation Functions in Deep Learning

May 8, 2022

Deep Neural Networks have been shown to be beneficial for a variety of tasks, in particular allowing for end-to-end learning and reducing the requirement for manual design decisions. However, still many parameters have to be chosen in advance, also raising the need to optimize them. One important, but often ignored system parameter is the selection of a proper activation function. So in this article, we will focus on different activation functions used in Deep Learning.
