Atos, a major player in France’s national strategy on quantum technologies

Paris, France – 21 January 2021

Atos welcomes the French government’s initiative and is very pleased to take part in the improvement of the countrywide approach on quantum systems, declared these days by President Emmanuel Macron.

With unique experience in Europe and impressive systems these as the Atos Quantum Finding out Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s most strong quantum simulator, Atos is now doing work carefully with countrywide gamers these as GENCI (Grand Equipement Nationwide de Calcul) and the CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique), as effectively as the start out-up Pasqal. The countrywide quantum approach now delivers Atos the prospect to speed up its Atos Quantum method and reinforce its contribution to the French quantum ecosystem, with a watch to giving its buyers the first rewards of quantum computing in the NISQ (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) period as quickly as attainable.

“The strategy declared these days for the improvement of quantum systems is rather impressive and we are really honored to have been associated with this announcement. Quantum computing guarantees significant progress in strategic spots for our society, these as health, chemistry, finance and the struggle versus world warming and decarbonization. Confronted with these key socio-economic challenges, it is vital to established up community-private partnerships and foster cooperation involving governments, academic scientists, consumers and private firms. France’s countrywide approach is equal to the revolution to occur and we are very pleased to be among the gamers who will take part in earning it a actuality,” claimed Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

Atos’ contribution to the countrywide quantum approach will concentrate on four spots:

  • The improvement of NISQ simulators and accelerators integrated into hybrid high-general performance computing platforms: capitalizing on the Atos QLM and its experience in high-general performance computing, Atos has established the intention of providing a quantum accelerator connected to a supercomputer as early as 2023. On the other hand, innovation in quantum computing is not only about components but also about software. This is the direction Atos is using with the Atos QLM quantum simulation and software improvement platform.
  • Publish-quantum cryptography: Atos is now doing work on integrating post-quantum algorithms into its cybersecurity machines. Its perform in this space will even more speed up the developments desired to prepare the components implementations of foreseeable future post-quantum criteria.
  • Worldwide cooperation: Atos has built doing work in cooperation with foreseeable future industrial consumers a precedence of its Atos Quantum method. The Team is included in a number of academic jobs, notably with the Institut d’Optique and INRIA. In parallel, its experience and the Atos QLM contribute to a number of European programs, together with the NEASQC (Following Programs of Quantum Computing) task. As section of the countrywide quantum approach, Atos intends to leverage the practical experience gained by means of these different jobs to foster interactions involving teachers, technological innovation providers and consumers.
  • Benchmarking: the speedy and steady emergence of new systems and methods to quantum programming is vital for the improvement of the sector, but also a resource of complexity for companies wishing to make investments. In 2020, Atos produced Q-rating, the first trusted, goal and honest common metric to simplify the marriage involving technological innovation consumers and providers.

Atos founded a Scientific Council devoted to Quantum. Associates are:

  • Alain Component, Professor at the Institut d’Optique Graduate University and Ecole Polytechnique, Université Paris-Saclay
  • David DiVincenzo, Professor at the Alexander von Humboldt College and Director at the Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Juelich Research Center
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute at the College of Oxford and Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Systems (CQT) at the Nationwide College of Singapore
  • Daniel Esteve, Research Director, CEA Saclay, Head of Quantronics
  • Serge Haroche, Professor Emeritus at the Collège de France, Nobel Prize in Physics.
