# q-Neurons: Neuron Activations based on Stochastic Jackson's Derivative Operators

1 Jun 2018Frank NielsenKe Sun

We propose a new generic type of stochastic neurons, called $q$-neurons, that considers activation functions based on Jackson's $q$-derivatives with stochastic parameters $q$. Our generalization of neural network architectures with $q$-neurons is shown to be both scalable and very easy to implement... (read more)
