I don't think it needs to store ALL the permutations, only the viable ones, the ones that lead to success. That has to be a much smaller number. But I was using that as an example of the mathematical nature of Chess. I think what we must mean by AI is that through recursion, a computer can retain successful paths to success (success being that which we define as success in the process.) I don't think we will ever see the day where a computer, lacking experience and all the data for a problem, can "reason" it's way to success.
