A sigmoid function is a function whose graph is shaped like the letter S. It could be defined as a differentiable bijection f from the real numbers to an open interval (a,b) , with \lim_{x\to\infty}f(x)=b\ ,\ \lim_{x\to-\infty} f(x)=a .

"The" sigmoid function S(x)=\frac{1}{1+e^{-x}} , a special case of the logistic function. Other sigmoid functions include arctan and erf.

One application of sigmoid functions is neural networks in AI programming.
