Also, the consensus here is that uploading requires more advanced tech and
science than making a UFAI, so we are unlikely to get uploading before UFAI
(specifically, precursors to the tech required for uploading [through any
probable path to uploading] can probably make UFAI). Also, a larger budget
is a bigger advantage in uploading than in FAI, so we have a larger
disadvantage vs competitors on that front.
