chip explanation

i am slowly upgrading my engine, and have asked this a few times already, but i will try one more time. what exactly does the stock "chip" do compared to the upgrade alternatives. i have replaced the stock exhaust with the Laser system (no cat converter) this has certainly made the bike sound better, maybe even perform better. I am also thinking of changing out the stock intake with the InDuct and the PowerFilter. It seems that increasing the ability of the engine to breath in and out, should be a pretty good place to start. So what role does the chip play in this. does the chip assess "real time" conditions and adjust accordingly, or does it just have an assumed set of conditions and adjusts fuel ratio accordingly. a bit of insight on this is more than welcom. thanks!
