Because to everyone else it looks like modern computers computing.

Because most people suck at math.

Because watching a machine follow a set of rules inexorably, without volition, emotion, consciousness, forethought, or intention is boring.

Because behavior requires physical movement through space-time, embodiment, and kinesthetics, otherwise it is just an operation, performance, or function.

Because AI still doesn’t exist, and may never.
