Atos and SENAI CIMATEC launch Center of Excellence in Quantum Computing in Brazil

Salvador (Brazil) and Paris (France), five May 2021

Atos and SENAI CIMATEC, a single of Brazil’s leading instruction, investigate and innovation institutes, announce Brazil’s to start with Centre of Excellence in Quantum Computing dedicated to the business enterprise sector.

Positioned in Salvador, Bahia, the Latin The united states Quantum Computing Centre (LAQCC) aims to encourage the adoption of quantum systems, provide teaching to establish a local quantum computing workforce and inspire scientific investigate in the most numerous spots, this sort of as chemistry and biology. The LAQCC will permit business enterprise people to establish technological roadmaps and perform effects scientific studies, algorithm investigations and applied investigate jobs.

“SENAI CIMATEC will be the to start with establishment centered on Quantum Computing Technologies – QCT in Bahia and a single of the several nationwide. Our partnership with Atos positions us as a new participant in the scientific and technological advancement of the disruptive branch of Quantum Computing”, says the director of Technologies and Innovation at SENAI CIMATEC, Leone Peter Andrade.

The Centre of Excellence will host Brazil’s to start with Atos Quantum Learning Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s most powerful quantum simulator. Named CIMATEC KUATOMU, the Atos QLM will leverage common supercomputing hardware to simulate quantum techniques and algorithms of up to 35 qubits. The Centre will concentrate on the exploration of the different apps of quantum computing and its integration with Superior Performance Computing (HPC systems), in line with Atos’ ambition to launch a quantum accelerator by 2023.

With this infrastructure, SENAI CIMATEC will enable people harness the energy of supercomputing and quantum computing to deliver breakthroughs in spots that deal with massive volumes of details, this sort of as medicine, meteorology, geology, physics and oil and gas.

“Quantum computing is gaining traction in Brazil, wherever it is noticed as a way to encourage scientific investigate and entrepreneurship. We hope that the infrastructure and solutions supplied by our new Centre of Excellence will empower the Brazilian quantum ecosystem to increase and get ready for the quantum era.
