Atos delivers its first GPU-accelerated Quantum Learning Machine to the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC)

Dublin, Ireland and Paris, France – 17 December 2020

Atos currently announces it will produce its initially GPU-accelerated Atos Quantum Discovering Device Improved (Atos QLM E), the world’s highest-undertaking commercially offered quantum simulator, to the Irish Centre for High-Conclude Computing (ICHEC).

The Atos QLM E will be integrated with the Irish nationwide supercomputer ‘Kay’ and geared up with a wide variety of quantum software programming resources. As a hybrid HPC-Quantum Computing ecosystem, the integrated Kay-Atos QLM E system will provide the Quantum Programming Ireland (QPI) Initiative for conducting R&D and nationwide-degree skills growth things to do in quantum technologies by ICHEC as well as other Irish companies in academic, business and general public sector.

Offering up to 12 instances a lot more computation pace than the primary Atos QLM, the Atos QLM E is also an integral ingredient of the ‘NEASQC’ task, in the €1 bn European flagship quantum initiative, of which Ireland is a companion along with eleven other European corporations and investigation labs, and coordinated by Atos.

When the Atos QLM E is sent on-premise, Atos will supply a quickly-observe training application and continue on to enrich the program in the course of its life time to assure that it delivers the features needed in this quickly-relocating discipline of quantum computing.

Prof. Jean-Christophe (“JC”) Desplat, Director at ICHEC, reported: “As Ireland’s higher functionality computing authority, we’re committed to applying the electricity of technologies to resolve some of the toughest challenges across general public, academic and business sectors. Doing the job with a selection of companions across Europe, we seem ahead to using the Atos QLM E connected for R&D on a selection of scientific and business-suitable quantum computing use-cases and supporting scientific breakthroughs in higher-functionality computing.”

Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, reported: “As the initially Atos QLM E deployed globally, this partnership marks an crucial milestone in our Quantum Program. We seem ahead to supporting ICHEC on their quantum journey, supporting them explore with their buyers the substantial likely that quantum computing features. The alternative will supply a scalable, future-evidence, nationwide framework for the porting of hybrid applications, and for the training and skills growth of Irish researchers, and ICHEC’s companions across Europe.”

Atos QLM E has been optimized to dramatically minimize the simulation time of hybrid classical-quantum algorithms simulations, primary to more quickly development in software investigation.

Atos, a pioneer in quantum

In 2016, Atos launched ‘Atos Quantum’ an bold application to foresee the future of quantum computing. As a end result of this initiative, Atos was the initially organization to provide a quantum sounds simulation module in its Atos QLM provide. Atos QLM is staying used in various nations around the world worldwide including Austria, Finland, France, Germany, India,  Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Senegal, UK and the United States, empowering key investigation packages in various sectors like business or electrical power. Just lately, Atos released “Q-score”, the initially common quantum metrics reference, relevant to all programmable quantum processors.
