Harris & Harris Group Notes D-Wave's Article In Phys.Org

Stocks in this article: TINY

NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:TINY), an investor in transformative companies enabled by disruptive science, notes the article posted by Robert Perkins on Phys.Org on Harris & Harris Group's portfolio company, D-Wave Systems, Inc., on March 5, 2014. The article, titled "D-Wave chip passes rigorous tests," discusses the results of research published on February 28, 2014, in Nature Physics.

According to the article, "An international collaboration of scientists has now published several papers rejecting classical models of the first generation D-Wave One processor housed at USC. According to the publication, the test demonstrates that the D-Wave One behaved in a way that agrees with a model called "quantum Monte Carlo," yet disagreed with two candidate classical models that could have described the processor in the absence of quantum effects. This is important because current tests cannot directly prove the D-Wave processor is quantum; they can only disprove candidate classical models one at a time."

"Coming on the heels of the February 17, 2014, Time magazine cover story on D-Wave and quantum computing, we believe this is another important confirmation for D-Wave's quantum processor," said Douglas Jamison, CEO of Harris & Harris Group. "As with many investments, there is little opportunity if there is not diversity of opinion. This is especially true when you are commercializing the world's first quantum computer. Many more studies are ongoing, and we will await their conclusions, but after reading the story in Time and seeing the progress D-Wave is making, it is difficult not to believe the company has a real opportunity to transform the nature of computing. For public market investors, we believe Harris & Harris Group offers the only opportunity to have access to this transformative new quantum computing paradigm."
