In previous study, deep learning and autoencoder have been applied for data detection of NOMA systems, rather than the resource allocation of OFDMA/NOMA systems. In previous work, we proposed the use of non-deep-learning-based cross-layer resource allocation for OFDMA/NOMA video communication systems. In this paper, we apply a deep neural network and supervised learning to an OFDMA subcarrier assignment and NOMA user grouping problem in downlink video communication systems. The resource allocation results from our previous work are used as training data at the training stage. At the testing stage, we propose a conversion algorithm to map the result of the sigmoid activation function (values between [0,1]) of the output layer of the DNN to either zero (unassigned) or one (assigned), in order to meet two hard constraints. The PSNR performance is very close (within 0.2dB) to that but has lower complexity, due to the non-iterative approach used in the testing stage of the DNN.
