Abstract-- Autonomous robots are being designed to complete
demanding tasks in complex, dynamic environments. Such
environments require robots to comprehensively understand
their situation, including the ability to develop and maintain
human-level situation awareness. This paper proposes a novel
approach to improving robot situational awareness based on
providing a mechanism for forgetting information. Robots are
inundated with data, which are often erroneous, out of date,
or irrelevant. The proposed approach may permit robots to rid
themselves of onerous knowledge, improve information recall,
and process data beneficial for situational awareness.
I. INTRODUCTION
While tremendous success has been achieved in the field of
Artificial Intelligence, robots are still ill-equipped to detect,
