Deep Blue involved some innovations with respect to the shape of the search tree - the ability to project some single lines 60 moves into the future, for example. But in the end it was simply brute force that crushed Kasparov. Deep Blue's feat cannot be compared to cognition; it was an autonomic process that happened to play chess.
