20 years is the timeline the semiconductor industry will stumble upon Molecular Nanotechnology. MNT military applications will be licensed... selfishly. If there must be an AGI maverick, please feel free to achieve AGI within two decades.

This kept me away from quantum computing studies even though the technology has underweighted singularity potential. My two cents says an AGI project of limited resources can leave the engineering recruitment till near the end as many prerequisite tools will be independently developed.
