Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos these days officially inaugurates its new world wide Study & Advancement Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the better Paris metropolitan place (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts all over 350 of Atos’ hugely qualified engineers, provides a modern place committed to investigate in quantum computing, high-efficiency computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Region and designed on Atos’ current website at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs practically one,000 persons, this lab is a further milestone in Atos’ tactic to establish and globally posture the historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Region as a solid heart of specialized know-how. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing investigate software and the very first key quantum marketplace software in Europe, added benefits from an expense of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceRegion as component of its ‘Smart Industry’ tactic, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to aid the battle from world wide warming
Decarbonization is a vital priority for Atos. The organization is committed to cutting down the world wide carbon emissions beneath its regulate and impact by fifty% by 2025 and to reach “zero internet emissions”, by 2028. The investigate produced in this new laboratory, conference the optimum environmental specifications, will emphasis on innovation to aid the battle from world wide warming, such as employing quantum calculation or the power effectiveness of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. Yet another instance is the progress of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be able to predict and optimize power consumption centered on the workload and the power obtainable in the electricity providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony noticed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be component of this progress of the marketplace of the foreseeable future in the Ile-de-France Region. This new developing and expense exhibit that we are getting ready the foreseeable future right below, right now. We are committed to producing the Ile-de-France Region a territory of innovation, a electronic chief at the heart of the financial material. This new R&D lab is in line with our strategies to promote the implementation and progress of strategic technologies, in certain quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Region.”
“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Region, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab these days which illustrates additional than fifty many years of investigate do the job carried out at our historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic website we will generate forward our ambitious quantum computing software and establish strategic technologies, products and solutions that will be sold worldwide, and that will assist form a safe, decarbonized future” explained Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a world wide software
The R&D lab will accommodate the investigate do the job performed as component of the Atos Quantum software, launched in 2016, which aims to accelerate the progress of scientific and marketplace-appropriate quantum computing use-scenarios. Atos researchers produced the Atos Quantum Studying Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s optimum-performing commercially obtainable quantum simulator, which is already staying utilised in a lot of nations around the world worldwide together with Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Uk and the United States, empowering key investigate programs in various sectors like marketplace or power. Atos also lately launched “Q-score”, the very first common quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, actions a quantum system’s efficiency at handling true-lifestyle complications, fairly than just measuring its theoretical efficiency.
