We consider the problem of estimating the intensity of a counting process in high-dimensional time-varying Aalen and Cox models. We introduce a covariate-specific weighted total-variation penalization, using data-driven weights that correctly scale the penalization along the observation interval. We provide theoretical guaranties for the convergence of our estimators and present a proximal algorithm to solve the convex studied problems. The practical use and effectiveness of the proposed method are demonstrated by simulation studies and real data example.
