Salvador (Brazil) and Paris (France), 5 Might 2021

Atos and SENAI CIMATEC, 1 of Brazil’s main training, analysis and innovation institutes, announce Brazil’s to start with Center of Excellence in Quantum Computing devoted to the enterprise sector.

Positioned in Salvador, Bahia, the Latin America Quantum Computing Center (LAQCC) aims to endorse the adoption of quantum systems, deliver teaching to develop a area quantum computing workforce and stimulate scientific analysis in the most varied regions, these as chemistry and biology. The LAQCC will empower enterprise users to develop technological roadmaps and perform effect scientific studies, algorithm investigations and used analysis jobs.

“SENAI CIMATEC will be the to start with establishment concentrated on Quantum Computing Technological innovation – QCT in Bahia and 1 of the couple of nationwide. Our partnership with Atos positions us as a new player in the scientific and technological growth of the disruptive branch of Quantum Computing”, suggests the director of Technological innovation and Innovation at SENAI CIMATEC, Leone Peter Andrade.

The Center of Excellence will host Brazil’s to start with Atos Quantum Mastering Device (Atos QLM), the world’s most strong quantum simulator. Named CIMATEC KUATOMU, the Atos QLM will leverage common supercomputing hardware to simulate quantum units and algorithms of up to 35 qubits. The Centre will concentrate on the exploration of the various applications of quantum computing and its integration with High Effectiveness Computing (HPC systems), in line with Atos’ ambition to launch a quantum accelerator by 2023.

With this infrastructure, SENAI CIMATEC will support users harness the electric power of supercomputing and quantum computing to deliver breakthroughs in regions that deal with significant volumes of data, these as drugs, meteorology, geology, physics and oil and fuel.

“Quantum computing is getting traction in Brazil, wherever it is observed as a way to stimulate scientific analysis and entrepreneurship. We hope that the infrastructure and services provided by our new Center of Excellence will empower the Brazilian quantum ecosystem to improve and prepare for the quantum era. It is also a testomony to Atos’ determination to democratizing obtain to systems that assure to deliver major developments in a huge wide range of fields in the around future”, suggests Luis Casuscelli, Director of Huge Information and Stability at Atos South America.

Considering the fact that its launch in 2017, the Atos Quantum Mastering Device (Atos QLM) has been utilized in numerous countries globally together with Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering major analysis systems in many sectors like market or power. Atos also lately introduced “Q-rating”, the to start with universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, measures a quantum system’s efficiency at managing serious-everyday living difficulties, somewhat than simply just measuring its theoretical efficiency.
