We consider the problem of falsifying safety requirements of Cyber-Physical Systems expressed in signal temporal logic (STL). This problem can be turned into an optimization problem via STL robustness functions. In this paper, our focus is in falsifying systems with multiple requirements. We propose to solve such conjunctive requirements using online generative adversarial networks (GANs) as test generators. Our main contribution is an algorithm which falsifies a conjunctive requirement φ_1

Our experiments indicate that, in addition to saving resources, this multi-armed bandit algorithm can falsify requirements with fewer number of executions on the system under test when compared to (i) an algorithm training a single GAN for the complete conjunctive requirement and (ii) an algorithm always training n GANs at each step.
