AI will arrive long before any true-augmented human could grow up. AI
will also arrive long before uploading. AI may be developed before BCI or
adult-neurohacking has a significant impact on anything, but not
necessarily so.

No AI would ever be interested in running on human biology except as an
inscrutable philosophical statement, just as a human might theoretically
translate verself into a gigantic simulated Babbage machine, but would be
rather silly in doing so. This is all fairly basic stuff, BTW.
