Try to use neural network for prediction: see package

I have a dataset of the lifespans (birth/death date)

people. I also have the birth dates of about 1,000,000
people who are
still alive. I also have other information for each of
these people
including faculty,state,year graduated etc. I would
like to do some
statistical analysis but since the data is factored
i'm having trouble. I
looked into using the SVM package to train and then
predict lifespans but
it assumes nonfactored data.

Any ideas?
