Paris, France – December three, 2021

At the conference of the 8th Atos Quantum Advisory Board, a group of intercontinental authorities, mathematicians and physicists, authorities in their fields, Atos reaffirms its placement as a international chief in quantum computing technologies. The quantum hybridization axis (convergence of superior-performance computing (HPC) and quantum computing) in particular positions the corporation at the forefront of quantum investigate, converging its knowledge. Atos has invested, along with spouse start off-ups Pasqal and IQM, in two significant quantum hybridization initiatives in France and Germany.

Held at Atos’ R&D centre, devoted to investigate in quantum computing and superior-performance computing, in Clayes-sous-Bois, in the existence of Atos’ up coming CEO, Rodolphe Belmer, and underneath the chairmanship of Pierre Barnabé, Chair of the Quantum Advisory Board, Interim co-CEO and Head of Significant Details and Cybersecurity, this conference of the Quantum Advisory Board was an prospect to overview Atos’ latest perform and to just take inventory of foreseeable future prospects.

Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, College of Oxford, Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore and member of the Quantum Advisory Board said “We are actually impressed by the perform and the progress that Atos has designed above the earlier year. The corporation normally takes quantum computing severely and it provides us good pleasure to see it becoming 1 of the critical gamers in the field. It is a all-natural development for Atos. As a planet chief in Substantial Performance Computing (HPC), Atos is in a exclusive placement to mix its present, substantial, knowledge in HPC with quantum technological innovation and just take equally fields to new heights. We are self-confident that Atos will form the quantum landscape in several years to arrive, equally with investigate and apps that have extensive-lasting impact.”

In the field of quantum hybridization Atos is the only participant and the corporation is now enabling numerous apps – in the spots of chemistry, these as catalysis design and style for nitrogen fixation, and for the optimization of clever grids. Atos is also involved in two supplemental quantum hybridization initiatives, which are at present being introduced:

The European HPC-QS (Quantum Simulation) venture, which begins this December 2021, aims to develop the to start with European hybrid supercomputer with an built-in quantum accelerator by the conclude of 2023. It is meant to be a to start with significant brick of the French quantum approach. Atos is involved in this venture along with national partners together with the CEA, GENCI, Pasqal and the Julich Supercomputing Centre. Pasqal will deliver its analog quantum accelerator and Atos, with its quantum simulator, the Quantum Understanding Equipment (QLM), will make certain the hybridization with the HPCs at the two datacenters at GENCI and Julich.

The Q-EXA venture, part of the German Government quantum approach, will see a consortium of partners, together with Atos, perform alongside one another to integrate a German quantum personal computer into an HPC supercomputer for the to start with time. Atos’ QLM will be instrumental in connecting the quantum personal computer, from start off-up IQM (also part of the Atos Scaler plan) to the Leibniz Supercomputing-LRZ centre.

The European Firm for Nuclear Investigate (CERN), 1 of the world’s largest and most highly regarded investigate centres, dependent in Geneva, has a short while ago obtained an Atos Quantum Understanding Equipment (QLM) equipment and joined the Atos Consumer Club. The Atos QLM, sent to CERN in October, will be designed offered to the CERN scientific group to assist investigate things to do in the framework of the CERN Quantum Technological innovation Initiative (CERN QTI), as a result accelerating the investigation of quantum benefit for superior-electrical power physics (HEP) and beyond.

“Building on CERN’s exclusive knowledge and robust collaborative culture, co-advancement attempts are at the core of CERN QTI. As we take a look at the quick-evolving field of quantum technologies, entry to the Atos Quantum Understanding Equipment and Atos’ knowledge can perform an critical position in our quantum developments roadmap in assist of the superior-electrical power physics group and beyond,” states Alberto Di Meglio, Coordinator of the CERN Quantum Technological innovation Initiative. “A devoted education workshop is being structured with Atos to look into the entire operation and possible of the quantum equipment, as nicely as its foreseeable future application for some of the CERN QTI things to do.”

“Atos is the planet chief in the convergence of supercomputing and quantum computing, as revealed by these two significant and strategic initiatives we are involved in in France and Germany. At a time when the French govt is expected to announce its approach for quantum computing, the durability of our Quantum Board, the high quality of the perform carried out and the concrete apps of this investigate in significant initiatives strengthen this placement,” responses Pierre Barnabé, interim co-CEO and head of Significant Details and Cybersecurity at Atos.

The Quantum Advisory Board is designed up of universally identified quantum physicists and incorporates:

  • Alain Part, Professor at the Institut d’Optique Graduate University, Université Paris-Saclay and at Ecole Polytechnique, Institut Polytechnique de Paris
  • David DiVincenzo, Alexander von Humboldt Professor, Director of the Institute for Quantum Data at RWTH Aachen College, Director of the Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Juelich Investigate Middle
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, College of Oxford and Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore
  • Daniel Esteve, Investigate Director, CEA Saclay, Head of Quantronics
  • Serge Haroche, Professor emeritus at the Collège de France, Nobel laureate in Physics.

As a end result of Atos’ formidable plan to foresee the foreseeable future of quantum computing and to be well prepared for the possibilities and issues that arrive with it – ‘Atos Quantum’ – Atos was the to start with firm to present a quantum noisy simulation module which can simulate genuine Qubits, the Atos QLM and to suggest Q-rating, the only common metrics to evaluate quantum performance and superiority. Atos is also the to start with European patent holder in quantum computing.
