Abstract
Phenomenal states are generally considered the ultimate sources of intrinsic motivation for autonomous biological agents. In this article, we will address the issue of the necessity of exploiting these states for the design and implementation of robust goal-directed arti ?cial sys- tems. We will provide an analysis of consciousness in terms of a precise de ?nition of how an agent \understands" the informational °ows entering the agent and its very own action possi- bilities. This abstract model of consciousness and understanding will be based in the analysis and evaluation of phenomenal states along potential future trajectories in the state space of the agents. This implies that a potential strategy to follow in order to build autonomous but still customer-useful systems is to embed them with the particular, ad hoc phenomenality that captures the system-external requirements that de ?ne the system usefulness from a customer- based, requirements-strict engineering viewpoint.
