I essentially agree with you, Eliezer. In fairness, however, it must be
pointed out that AI probably requires a lot more *computer science* advances
than uploading.... If AI can itself help make these advances, then we're
all set, perhaps. But this certainly isn't demonstrated yet, though a
number of us have intuitions pointing in this direction...
