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 happy to participate in the advancement of the nationwide approach on quantum technologies, introduced now by President Emmanuel Macron.

With unique knowledge in Europe and revolutionary technologies these as the Atos Quantum Discovering Device (Atos QLM), the world’s most impressive quantum simulator, Atos is now operating carefully with nationwide gamers these as GENCI (Grand Equipement Nationwide de Calcul) and the CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique), as nicely as the get started-up Pasqal. The nationwide quantum approach now presents Atos the option to accelerate its Atos Quantum application and bolster its contribution to the French quantum ecosystem, with a check out to offering its clients the initial rewards of quantum computing in the NISQ (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) era as shortly as probable.

“The system introduced now for the advancement of quantum technologies is quite extraordinary and we are quite honored to have been involved with this announcement. Quantum computing promises significant progress in strategic locations for our modern society, these as health and fitness, chemistry, finance and the struggle from global warming and decarbonization. Confronted with these significant socio-economic difficulties, it is necessary to set up public-personal partnerships and foster cooperation amongst governments, tutorial researchers, customers and personal businesses. France’s nationwide approach is equivalent to the revolution to come and we are happy to be between the gamers who will participate in earning it a fact,” said Elie Girard, Atos CEO.

Atos’ contribution to the nationwide quantum approach will concentrate on 4 locations:

  • The advancement of NISQ simulators and accelerators integrated into hybrid higher-performance computing platforms: capitalizing on the Atos QLM and its knowledge in higher-performance computing, Atos has set the goal of giving 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 application. This is the direction Atos is using with the Atos QLM quantum simulation and application advancement system.
  • Post-quantum cryptography: Atos is now operating on integrating publish-quantum algorithms into its cybersecurity products. Its operate in this space will even further accelerate the developments essential to get ready the components implementations of long run publish-quantum criteria.
  • Global cooperation: Atos has created operating in cooperation with long run industrial customers a priority of its Atos Quantum application. The Group is involved in various tutorial jobs, notably with the Institut d’Optique and INRIA. In parallel, its knowledge and the Atos QLM add to various European plans, including the NEASQC (Following Applications of Quantum Computing) venture. As portion of the nationwide quantum approach, Atos intends to leverage the knowledge acquired by these a variety of jobs to foster interactions amongst teachers, engineering companies and customers.
  • Benchmarking: the fast and continuous emergence of new technologies and strategies to quantum programming is necessary for the advancement of the sector, but also a resource of complexity for corporations wishing to spend. In 2020, Atos produced Q-score, the initial reliable, objective and good common metric to simplify the marriage amongst engineering customers and companies.

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

  • Alain Element, Professor at the Institut d’Optique Graduate School 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 Exploration Heart
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute at the College of Oxford and Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) at the Nationwide College of Singapore
  • Daniel Esteve, Exploration Director, CEA Saclay, Head of Quantronics
  • Serge Haroche, Professor Emeritus at the Collège de France, Nobel Prize in Physics.
