DescriptionNeural networks are being increasingly applied to control and decision making for learning-enabled cyber-physical systems (LE-CPSs). They have shown promising performance without requiring the development of complex physical models; however, their adoption is significantly hindered by the concerns on their safety, robustness, and efficiency. In this work, we propose Cocktail, a novel design framework that automatically learns a neural network based controller from multiple existing control methods (experts) that could be either model-based or neural network based.
Experiments on three non-linear systems demonstrate significant advantages of our approach on these properties over various baseline methods.
