Atos unveils global R&D Lab to drive innovation in Cybersecurity, High Performance Computing and Quantum

Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), FranceApril 22, 2021

Atos nowadays formally inaugurates its new worldwide Investigation & Advancement Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the bigger Paris metropolitan space (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts all around 350 of Atos’ highly skilled engineers, supplies a modern-day space committed to exploration in quantum computing, significant-effectiveness computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and crafted on Atos’ current web site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs just about one,000 folks, this lab is an additional milestone in Atos’ tactic to establish and globally placement the historic web site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a sturdy middle of specialized know-how. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration plan and the initially key quantum industry plan in Europe, added benefits from an financial investment of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as element of its ‘Smart Industry’ tactic, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to assist the battle versus worldwide warming

Decarbonization is a key priority for Atos. The organization is dedicated to cutting down the worldwide carbon emissions less than its control and influence by 50{79e59ee6e2f5cf570628ed7ac4055bef3419265de010b59461d891d43fac5627} by 2025 and to achieve “zero net emissions”, by 2028. The exploration made in this new laboratory, assembly the maximum environmental criteria, will concentrate on innovation to assist the battle versus worldwide warming, such as making use of quantum calculation or the electrical power effectiveness of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. A different example is the progress of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be capable to predict and improve electrical power consumption dependent on the workload and the electrical power obtainable in the electricity providers’ grids.

Inauguration Ceremony

The inauguration ceremony saw Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am very pleased to be element of this progress of the industry of the upcoming in the Ile-de-France Area. This new building and financial investment demonstrate that we are planning the upcoming proper listed here, proper now. We are dedicated to making the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a electronic leader at the heart of the financial fabric. This new R&D lab is in line with our strategies to encourage the implementation and progress of strategic technologies, in certain quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Area.”

“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Area, I am thrilled to formally open up our new R&D Lab nowadays which illustrates additional than 50 several years of exploration get the job done carried out at our historic web site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic web site we will push forward our bold quantum computing plan and establish strategic technologies, merchandise and alternatives that will be bought all over the world, and that will assistance shape a secure, decarbonized future” explained Elie Girard, CEO Atos.

Atos Quantum: a worldwide plan

The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration get the job done executed as element of the Atos Quantum plan, released in 2016, which aims to accelerate the progress of scientific and industry-applicable quantum computing use-conditions. Atos researchers made the Atos Quantum Mastering Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s maximum-doing commercially obtainable quantum simulator, which is already being applied in numerous international locations all over the world like Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering key exploration programs in numerous sectors like industry or electrical power. Atos also lately released “Q-rating”, the initially common quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, steps a quantum system’s efficiency at managing genuine-everyday living difficulties, somewhat than merely measuring its theoretical effectiveness.

Check out under the movie presentation of the new Atos R&D laboratory (in French). Elie Girard and Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Regional Council, focus on the new lab, followed by a virtual pay a visit to of the new web site with Philippe Guiguen, Mayor of Clayes-sous-Bois and the full Atos team: Sophie Proust, CTO Pierre Barnabé, Head of Huge Knowledge and Cybersecurity Arnaud Bertrand, Director of Strategy and Innovation Huge Knowledge and Cybersecurity Agnes Boudot, Director of HPC, AI & Quantum pursuits and Cyril Allouche, R&D Director, Quantum Computing.
