Wireless Data Broadcasting (WDB) is proven to be an efficient information delivery mechanism of nearly unlimited scalability. However, successful performance of a WDB based system is not always guaranteed - it strongly depends on the system's ability to identify the most popular information (documents) among users and accurately estimate their actual request probabilities. In this paper, we argue that a recently proposed unsupervised neural network algorithm possesses the key properties of an ideal estimator of document request probabilities. Obtained simulation results support the theoretical assumptions and suggest a near optimal performance of a WDB based system employing the given algorithm.
