Deep Neural Networks are nonlinear Activation Functions

Almost any process imaginable can be represented as a functional computation in a neural network, provided that the activation function is non-linear.



Non-linear functions address the problems of a linear activation function:

  1. They allow backpropagation because they have a derivative function which is related to the inputs.

  2. They allow “stacking” of multiple layers of neurons to create a deep neural network. Multiple hidden layers of neurons are needed to learn complex data sets with high levels of accuracy.
