From what has been discussed within this elaboration it is evident that the creation of artificial conscious entities is only a matter of time – the required technology and methodology already exists or is researched on in ambitious projects such as the human brain project. The question therefore is not if it will be possible or not, but how this will influence the world we live in. Ethical questions must be prompted, as we will have to decide upon how we treat artificial conscious entities, namely as conscious beings or as objects such as a today’s computer, and which rights will be granted to them, because if an ACE is capable of questioning the world and oneself it will also question its creators.
