Abstract: In this paper an information geometric approach to survival analysis is described. A neural network is designed to model the probability of failure of a system, and it is trained by minimising a suitable divergence functional in a Bayesian framework. By using the trained network, minimisation of the same divergence functional allows for fast, efficient and exact feature selection.
