Note also that the expression "computation have qualia" can be misleading. A computation has no qualia, strictly speaking. Only a person supported by an infinity of computation can be said to have qualia, or to live qualia.
Why an infinity of computation?? That would preclude my building an intelligent robot having qualia, since it's computations would always be finite. And I doubt there is room in my head for infinite computations - certainly not digital ones.
