This is an updated version of SigmoidNumbers for Posits, Valids and Unum II Numbers for Julia by Mohammad Hizzani

Based on the Sigmoid Numbers Invented by John Gustafson

ML Applications & Implementation by Isaac Yonemoto

Two types of Sigmoid Numbers

  1. Universal Sigmoid Numbers

  2. Estimated Sigmoid Numbers (Posits)


In order to add SigmoidNumbers simply from a Julia REPL

julia> ] add SigmoidNumbers

To use it

julia> using SigmoidNumbers

julia> P1 = Posit{16,0}; #16 is number of bits, 0 is ES

julia> a = P1(0)
