I don't know if this is a silly question but still I couldn't resist my self from asking this.

I recently came to know about the standard sigmoid function while learning about logistic regression and neural networks. After that I found the same function in population growth modelling and Fermi-Dirac statistics. Is there something fundamental about this sigmoid function? Why is it so useful while tackling problems involving probabilities (given that we have other functions too)?
