Answer text

Perhaps an ai which is aligned with the values of humanity as a whole may decide that it's worth "uploading" someone contrary to their will if it better serve humanity to have us all uploaded than not to, but it seems likely that most people do not wish to be "uploaded" (See Nozick's experience machine) and so an aligned superintelligence would not do this.

A misaligned superintelligence would have no qualm with destroying us entirely in order to use the matter of our bodies, and it most likely would not bother to "upload" us since it is misaligned.
