Abstract

This paper advertises a new account of computational implementation. According to the resemblance account, implementation is a matter of resembling a computational architecture. The resemblance account departs from previous theories by denying that computational architectures are exhausted by their formal, mathematical features. Instead, they are taken to be permeated with causality, spatiotemporality, and other non-mathematical features. I argue that this approach comports well with computer scientific practice, and offers a novel response to so-called triviality arguments.
