Paris, France – December 3, 2021

At the conference of the 8th Atos Quantum Advisory Board, a team of intercontinental authorities, mathematicians and physicists, authorities in their fields, Atos reaffirms its situation as a world wide chief in quantum computing systems. The quantum hybridization axis (convergence of large-functionality computing (HPC) and quantum computing) in specific positions the company at the forefront of quantum investigate, converging its expertise. Atos has invested, alongside with husband or wife start-ups Pasqal and IQM, in two important quantum hybridization tasks in France and Germany.

Held at Atos’ R&D centre, devoted to investigate in quantum computing and large-functionality computing, in Clayes-sous-Bois, in the presence of Atos’ up coming CEO, Rodolphe Belmer, and under the chairmanship of Pierre Barnabé, Chair of the Quantum Advisory Board, Interim co-CEO and Head of Massive Info and Cybersecurity, this conference of the Quantum Advisory Board was an option to evaluation Atos’ latest get the job done and to acquire stock of upcoming prospects.

Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore and member of the Quantum Advisory Board reported “We are genuinely amazed by the get the job done and the development that Atos has made about the past 12 months. The company usually takes quantum computing severely and it offers us fantastic pleasure to see it getting a person of the essential players in the area. It is a normal development for Atos. As a environment chief in Large Functionality Computing (HPC), Atos is in a exceptional situation to mix its current, in depth, expertise in HPC with quantum technologies and acquire equally fields to new heights. We are assured that Atos will shape the quantum landscape in a long time to come, equally with investigate and purposes that have very long-lasting effect.”

In the area of quantum hybridization Atos is the only participant and the company is currently enabling a number of purposes – in the parts of chemistry, this sort of as catalysis style and design for nitrogen fixation, and for the optimization of wise grids. Atos is also associated in two more quantum hybridization tasks, which are at the moment staying introduced:

The European HPC-QS (Quantum Simulation) project, which starts off this December 2021, aims to construct the 1st European hybrid supercomputer with an built-in quantum accelerator by the end of 2023. It is intended to be a 1st important brick of the French quantum plan. Atos is associated in this project along with national associates which include the CEA, GENCI, Pasqal and the Julich Supercomputing Centre. Pasqal will provide its analog quantum accelerator and Atos, with its quantum simulator, the Quantum Studying Equipment (QLM), will make sure the hybridization with the HPCs at the two datacenters at GENCI and Julich.

The Q-EXA project, aspect of the German Authorities quantum plan, will see a consortium of associates, which include Atos, get the job done alongside one another to integrate a German quantum computer system into an HPC supercomputer for the 1st time. Atos’ QLM will be instrumental in connecting the quantum computer system, from start-up IQM (also aspect of the Atos Scaler application) to the Leibniz Supercomputing-LRZ centre.

The European Corporation for Nuclear Exploration (CERN), a person of the world’s largest and most revered investigate centres, centered in Geneva, has recently obtained an Atos Quantum Studying Equipment (QLM) appliance and joined the Atos User Club. The Atos QLM, sent to CERN in Oct, will be made readily available to the CERN scientific group to help investigate routines in the framework of the CERN Quantum Know-how Initiative (CERN QTI), hence accelerating the investigation of quantum edge for large-vitality physics (HEP) and over and above.

“Building on CERN’s exceptional expertise and powerful collaborative tradition, co-advancement endeavours are at the core of CERN QTI. As we take a look at the speedy-evolving area of quantum systems, access to the Atos Quantum Studying Equipment and Atos’ expertise can perform an important position in our quantum developments roadmap in help of the large-vitality physics group and over and above,” says Alberto Di Meglio, Coordinator of the CERN Quantum Know-how Initiative. “A devoted training workshop is staying organized with Atos to look into the entire performance and probable of the quantum appliance, as effectively as its upcoming application for some of the CERN QTI routines.”

“Atos is the environment chief in the convergence of supercomputing and quantum computing, as proven by these two important and strategic tasks we are associated in in France and Germany. At a time when the French governing administration is expected to announce its plan for quantum computing, the durability of our Quantum Board, the high-quality of the get the job done carried out and the concrete purposes of this investigate in important tasks enhance this situation,” comments Pierre Barnabé, interim co-CEO and head of Massive Info and Cybersecurity at Atos.

The Quantum Advisory Board is made up of universally acknowledged quantum physicists and includes:

  • Alain Factor, 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 Data at RWTH Aachen University, Director of the Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Juelich Exploration Heart
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford and Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore
  • Daniel Esteve, Exploration Director, CEA Saclay, Head of Quantronics
  • Serge Haroche, Professor emeritus at the Collège de France, Nobel laureate in Physics.

As a outcome of Atos’ formidable application to anticipate the upcoming of quantum computing and to be organized for the chances and challenges that come with it – ‘Atos Quantum’ – Atos was the 1st group to present a quantum noisy simulation module which can simulate authentic Qubits, the Atos QLM and to suggest Q-rating, the only common metrics to evaluate quantum functionality and superiority. Atos is also the 1st European patent holder in quantum computing.
