Atos coordinates NEASQC, an ambitious European project to lead the future quantum computing revolution

Paris, 5 October 2020

Atos, a worldwide leader in digital transformation, announces its participation in the European undertaking NEASQC[1], whose ambition is to prepare European organizations for the age of quantum computing by checking out a huge selection of industrial and fiscal use circumstances, and affiliated algorithms, compatible with NISQ[2] pcs, the initial quantum devices to be offered in the near potential. Atos will coordinate and do the job hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other associates, major industrial end-people and educational experts from eight European nations around the world, to initiate an active European neighborhood all over NISQ Quantum Computing.

Even though quantum pcs might not still be all set, businesses looking to tap into the ability of quantum computing can currently experiment by making use of dedicated programming and simulation platforms, this sort of as Atos’ Quantum Learning Equipment (Atos QLM). Nonetheless, the deficiency of software libraries helps make its very difficult for non-qualified people to envision and anticipate the value that this sort of an influx of computing ability will deliver.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating 9 industrial use circumstances that are likely to gain drastically from NISQ quantum computing. These use circumstances incorporate practical challenges that will right gain European organizations and citizens: drug discovery, breast most cancers detection, CO2 seize, good electrical power administration and organic language processing for example. The undertaking will then produce open up supply libraries necessary for these use circumstances, to inspire industrial end-people to get started the move to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and manage the roll-out of the NEASQC undertaking, major the person group that will be built up of the associates included in quantum program developments, as nicely as exterior end-people of the NEASQC programming environment. Atos is also dependable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ features, inside of the ‘technology enablement’ section of the undertaking.

In addition, Atos will supply the quantum programming environment, Atos myQLM, whose vendor lock-in no cost solution assures a comprehensive compatibility with the quantum processors designed inside of the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will produce and integrate open up supply NISQ software libraries in conjunction with the many use circumstances protected by the NEASQC undertaking.

“As an international enterprise with European roots, we are happy to assist the NEASQC undertaking with our sophisticated technologies and know-how in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the opportunity to alter the sport in this sort of fields as logistics, manufacturing, finance or electrical power but it needs to get the rely on of people to recognize that opportunity. The subsequent couple a long time will be very exciting but also essential for these looking to achieve accomplishment in this area and we hope that our contribution will assistance place European businesses at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” discussed Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Software at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC undertaking.

The 4-yr undertaking has a finances of 4.67 million Euros, funded by underneath the European Horizon2020 plan.
