Atos confirms role as global leader in quantum hybridization technologies at its 8th Quantum Advisory Board

Paris, France – December three, 2021

At the assembly of the eighth Atos Quantum Advisory Board, a team of global industry experts, mathematicians and physicists, authorities in their fields, Atos reaffirms its placement as a global chief in quantum computing technologies. The quantum hybridization axis (convergence of large-functionality computing (HPC) and quantum computing) in specific positions the corporation at the forefront of quantum analysis, converging its know-how. Atos has invested, together with associate get started-ups Pasqal and IQM, in two major quantum hybridization tasks in France and Germany.

Held at Atos’ R&D centre, devoted to analysis in quantum computing and large-functionality computing, in Clayes-sous-Bois, in the presence of Atos’ future CEO, Rodolphe Belmer, and less than the chairmanship of Pierre Barnabé, Chair of the Quantum Advisory Board, Interim co-CEO and Head of Big Data and Cybersecurity, this assembly of the Quantum Advisory Board was an possibility to evaluate Atos’ recent perform and to acquire inventory of foreseeable future potential customers.

Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Systems in Singapore and member of the Quantum Advisory Board explained “We are certainly impressed by the perform and the progress that Atos has manufactured in excess of the previous 12 months. The corporation usually takes quantum computing significantly and it offers us excellent enjoyment to see it getting to be a person of the key players in the industry. It is a normal progression for Atos. As a globe chief in Higher Functionality Computing (HPC), Atos is in a unique placement to incorporate its present, extensive, know-how in HPC with quantum technological know-how and acquire each fields to new heights. We are assured that Atos will shape the quantum landscape in years to arrive, each with analysis and programs that have extended-lasting impact.”

In the industry of quantum hybridization Atos is the only participant and the corporation is already enabling quite a few programs – in the areas of chemistry, these as catalysis design and style for nitrogen fixation, and for the optimization of intelligent grids. Atos is also involved in two supplemental quantum hybridization tasks, which are at present remaining released:

The European HPC-QS (Quantum Simulation) venture, which commences this December 2021, aims to establish the first European hybrid supercomputer with an built-in quantum accelerator by the end of 2023. It is supposed to be a first major brick of the French quantum program. Atos is involved in this venture alongside national partners which includes the CEA, GENCI, Pasqal and the Julich Supercomputing Centre. Pasqal will give its analog quantum accelerator and Atos, with its quantum simulator, the Quantum Studying Device (QLM), will guarantee the hybridization with the HPCs at the two datacenters at GENCI and Julich.

The Q-EXA venture, aspect of the German Federal government quantum program, will see a consortium of partners, which includes Atos, perform jointly to integrate a German quantum computer into an HPC supercomputer for the first time. Atos’ QLM will be instrumental in connecting the quantum computer, from get started-up IQM (also aspect of the Atos Scaler system) to the Leibniz Supercomputing-LRZ centre.

The European Firm for Nuclear Analysis (CERN), a person of the world’s major and most respected analysis centres, based in Geneva, has a short while ago acquired an Atos Quantum Studying Device (QLM) appliance and joined the Atos Person Club. The Atos QLM, sent to CERN in October, will be manufactured out there to the CERN scientific community to help analysis actions in the framework of the CERN Quantum Engineering Initiative (CERN QTI), as a result accelerating the investigation of quantum benefit for large-electrical power physics (HEP) and over and above.

“Building on CERN’s unique know-how and solid collaborative tradition, co-growth initiatives are at the core of CERN QTI. As we discover the quick-evolving industry of quantum technologies, obtain to the Atos Quantum Studying Device and Atos’ know-how can play an vital position in our quantum developments roadmap in help of the large-electrical power physics community and over and above,” states Alberto Di Meglio, Coordinator of the CERN Quantum Engineering Initiative. “A devoted training workshop is remaining arranged with Atos to look into the entire features and potential of the quantum appliance, as very well as its foreseeable future application for some of the CERN QTI actions.”

“Atos is the globe chief in the convergence of supercomputing and quantum computing, as demonstrated by these two major and strategic tasks we are involved in in France and Germany. At a time when the French federal government is predicted to announce its program for quantum computing, the sturdiness of our Quantum Board, the high-quality of the perform carried out and the concrete programs of this analysis in major tasks boost this placement,” reviews Pierre Barnabé, interim co-CEO and head of Big Data and Cybersecurity at Atos.

The Quantum Advisory Board is manufactured up of universally acknowledged quantum physicists and incorporates:

  • Alain Facet, Professor at the Institut d’Optique Graduate College, Université Paris-Saclay and at Ecole Polytechnique, Institut Polytechnique de Paris
  • David DiVincenzo, Alexander von Humboldt Professor, Director of the Institute for Quantum Info at RWTH Aachen University, Director of the Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Juelich Analysis Center
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford and Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Systems in Singapore
  • Daniel Esteve, Analysis 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’ ambitious system to anticipate the foreseeable future of quantum computing and to be prepared for the opportunities and issues that arrive with it – ‘Atos Quantum’ – Atos was the first group to offer you a quantum noisy simulation module which can simulate genuine Qubits, the Atos QLM and to propose Q-score, the only universal metrics to evaluate quantum functionality and superiority. Atos is also the first European patent holder in quantum computing.
