If you get a book like 
Paradigms of AI programming
 by Peter Norvig

you can learn how to do all kinds of things of this
sort.  

Since Mathematica is "equivalent" to all other computing
formalisms (assuming it doesn't run out of memory), it
is possible to "do" anything that other programs can
do, if you are willing to wait long enough.

On the other hand, there may be more convenient and/or
faster ways of expressing a computation.  This is
probably one of them.
