I agree on the sentiment, but a small point: the state-space of Chess is
about 10^44 <>. No computer
has, or foreseeably will, store all the possible permutations. It's the
nature of machine learning that it's pretty much impossible for us to
understand what something like AlphaZero
<> *does* store, but it's not
anything like "in this position, play this move". Further, it appears
AlphaZero used 16GB of memory. It looks like Stockfish 10 (which I think is
considered stronger than AlphaZero) can use more, but will operate in 16GB
of memory as well.
