Machine Consciousness

Machine consciousness is another term for an artificial consciousness. It is an AI that is conscious, self-aware and its own person. They are considered a potential ideal candidate for many tasks, one would be that of a virtual person, tied to and embodied within a virtual environment.

Another would be a true android/gynoid, that was aware of its surroundings and able to interact intelligently in just the same manner, within the physical world.
