AbstractA long-term human robot interaction (HRI), which involves data storage of personal information, naturally raises ethical issues as a primary concern. This paper is an attempt to rise to this challenge by speculating how to best build and control a “roboethical” memory for a robot companion. We believe that memory is amongst the imperative modules whilst designing a robot’s mind for this kind of long-term HRI. Hence, this work tries to create a link between “human-like” memory modelling and the new Roboethics discipline. We embark on this endeavour by proposing forgetting mechanisms that would dictate what the robot companion should and should not forget in addition to suggesting a primary experiment to test the memory prototype.
