I finally know who to blame for AI.

The belief that numbers are intelligent is really no different from the belief that machines are intelligent. The numbers of mathematics and statistics are apparently capable of bestowing intelligence on our machines through the language of programming in the medium of algorithms so why couldn’t they be intelligent themselves. Really it makes everything so much easier that way.
