A New Activation Function for Artificial Neural Net Based Habitability Classification
International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics, ICACCI 2018
We explore the efficacy of using a novel activation function in Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) in characterizing exoplanets into different classes. We call this Saha-Bora Activation Function (SBAF) as the motivation is derived from long standing understanding of using advanced calculus in modeling habitability score of Exoplanets. The function is demonstrated to possess nice analytical properties and doesn't seem to suffer from local oscillation problems. The manuscript presents the analytical properties of the activation function and the architecture implemented on the function.
