Robots and artificial consciousness

These Self-Aware Robots Are Redefining Consciousness” (from Seeker Focal Point, 7 minutes).

The film takes the position that “simulating the future” for learning is a kind of artificial consciousness.

The film shows that even individual parts, like robotic arms, can be designed to develop this capability.

The concept was demonstrated on 2016 when a computer designed in the UK won a Go game against a world champion in a match played in South Korea.

Can conscious entities combine to form herd consciousness?  Is this what happens with bees?
In theory, robotic consciousness could provide a way to settle many planets in the galaxy, over millions to billions of years.
