This question, in technical terms, is asking whether Strong AI is possible.

  • Anectodal evidence that machines don't produce meaning - [1]
  • But, does information science actually derive mathematically that machines cannot produce meaning?
  • TLDR; if it makes meaning, it's no longer a machine [2]
  • Nature - TLDR; General Artificial Intelligence is possible; Strong AI is not. [3]
  • No computer has passed the Turing Test yet
  • There is no answer to the main question here because intelligence, and meaning, are not well-defined terms. [4]

Now here is the answer - Alan Turing proved that computers cannot do everything in 1936. This is known as the Halting Problem.
