%X Data assimilation is an essential step for improving space weather operational forecasting by means of an appropriated combination between observational data and data from a mathematical model. In the present work data assimilation methods based on Kalman filter and artificial neural networks are applied to a three-wave model of auroral radio emissions. A novel data assimilation method is presented, whereby a multilayer perceptron neural network is trained to emulate a Kalman filter for data assimilation by using cross validation. The results obtained render support for the use of neural networks as an assimilation technique for space weather prediction.
