I use the p-zombie in my game as an example of AI for spacecraft, while it can locate itself in a 3D environment, it does not have a concept of self, and is not conscious on that level. This differs from the singularity AI, Gaia, which does have a conscious sense of self. Maybe they are like the aliens with planet sized "brains" and what we see are their drones, or Scramblers, like in Peter Watts' Blindsight:
"The notion that these aliens could lack consciousness and possess intelligence is linked to the idea that some humans could also have diminished consciousness and remain outwardly functional. This idea is similar to the concept of philosophical zombie, as it is understood in philosophy of mind. Blindsight supposes that sociopaths might be a manifestation of this same phenomenon, and the demands of corporate environments might be environmental factors causing some part of humanity to evolve toward becoming philosophical zombies."
