MAD will serve us well, until it fails. We might have the UIM by then,
but we might not.

What I have not seen is some kind of timeline that shows the intermediate
steps that need to be accomplished before the UIM is born. Any major
project has something like this, but Ive not seen one for AI. Does such
a thing exist? Are there milestones we should be looking for? spike
