A feedforward neural network architecture for survival analysis is presented which generalizes the standard, usually linear, models described in literature. The time variable is embedded in the model and the network is able to extract its interactions with other system features. The resulting model is described in a hierarchical Bayesian framework. Experiments with synthetic and real world data show a comparison of this model with the standard ones.
