Paris, France – December 3, 2021

At the assembly of the eighth Atos Quantum Advisory Board, a group of intercontinental gurus, mathematicians and physicists, authorities in their fields, Atos reaffirms its situation as a worldwide chief in quantum computing systems. The quantum hybridization axis (convergence of significant-functionality computing (HPC) and quantum computing) in certain positions the company at the forefront of quantum investigate, converging its know-how. Atos has invested, along with husband or wife start off-ups Pasqal and IQM, in two major quantum hybridization assignments in France and Germany.

Held at Atos’ R&D centre, committed to investigate in quantum computing and significant-functionality computing, in Clayes-sous-Bois, in the presence of Atos’ subsequent CEO, Rodolphe Belmer, and less than the chairmanship of Pierre Barnabé, Chair of the Quantum Advisory Board, Interim co-CEO and Head of Large Data and Cybersecurity, this assembly of the Quantum Advisory Board was an possibility to critique Atos’ recent work and to consider inventory of future prospective clients.

Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, College of Oxford, Founding Director of the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore and member of the Quantum Advisory Board said “We are truly amazed by the work and the development that Atos has designed in excess of the earlier 12 months. The company takes quantum computing severely and it gives us great satisfaction to see it becoming a single of the vital players in the subject. It is a natural development for Atos. As a entire world chief in Large Overall performance Computing (HPC), Atos is in a one of a kind situation to merge its existing, comprehensive, know-how in HPC with quantum know-how and consider both of those fields to new heights. We are self-confident that Atos will form the quantum landscape in years to occur, both of those with investigate and purposes that have extended-long lasting influence.”

In the subject of quantum hybridization Atos is the only participant and the company is previously enabling numerous purposes – in the spots of chemistry, this kind of as catalysis style and design for nitrogen fixation, and for the optimization of sensible grids. Atos is also associated in two added quantum hybridization assignments, which are at present staying launched:

The European HPC-QS (Quantum Simulation) undertaking, which commences this December 2021, aims to build the first European hybrid supercomputer with an built-in quantum accelerator by the end of 2023. It is intended to be a first major brick of the French quantum prepare. Atos is associated in this undertaking along with national partners including the CEA, GENCI, Pasqal and the Julich Supercomputing Centre. Pasqal will give 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 undertaking, part of the German Govt quantum prepare, will see a consortium of partners, including Atos, work together to combine a German quantum pc into an HPC supercomputer for the first time. Atos’ QLM will be instrumental in connecting the quantum pc, from start off-up IQM (also part of the Atos Scaler program) to the Leibniz Supercomputing-LRZ centre.

The European Business for Nuclear Exploration (CERN), a single of the world’s major and most highly regarded investigate centres, based mostly in Geneva, has recently acquired an Atos Quantum Studying Equipment (QLM) equipment and joined the Atos Person Club. The Atos QLM, sent to CERN in October, will be designed offered to the CERN scientific group to assist investigate things to do in the framework of the CERN Quantum Technologies Initiative (CERN QTI), hence accelerating the investigation of quantum benefit for significant-strength physics (HEP) and further than.

“Building on CERN’s one of a kind know-how and powerful collaborative tradition, co-progress endeavours are at the main of CERN QTI. As we explore the fast-evolving subject of quantum systems, entry to the Atos Quantum Studying Equipment and Atos’ know-how can participate in an crucial purpose in our quantum developments roadmap in assist of the significant-strength physics group and further than,” says Alberto Di Meglio, Coordinator of the CERN Quantum Technologies Initiative. “A committed education workshop is staying structured with Atos to examine the whole features and possible of the quantum equipment, as effectively as its future application for some of the CERN QTI things to do.”

“Atos is the entire world chief in the convergence of supercomputing and quantum computing, as shown by these two major and strategic assignments we are associated in in France and Germany. At a time when the French government is envisioned to announce its prepare for quantum computing, the longevity of our Quantum Board, the excellent of the work carried out and the concrete purposes of this investigate in major assignments strengthen this situation,” remarks Pierre Barnabé, interim co-CEO and head of Large Data and Cybersecurity at Atos.

The Quantum Advisory Board is designed up of universally recognized quantum physicists and incorporates:

  • Alain Aspect, Professor at the Institut d’Optique Graduate University, Université Paris-Saclay and at Ecole Polytechnique, Institut Polytechnique de Paris
  • David DiVincenzo, Alexander von Humboldt Professor, Director of the Institute for Quantum Facts at RWTH Aachen College, Director of the Institute for Theoretical Nanoelectronics at the Juelich Exploration Center
  • Artur Ekert, Professor of Quantum Physics at the Mathematical Institute, College 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 end result of Atos’ formidable program to anticipate the future of quantum computing and to be organized for the opportunities and difficulties that occur with it – ‘Atos Quantum’ – Atos was the first organization to present a quantum noisy simulation module which can simulate true Qubits, the Atos QLM and to suggest Q-score, the only universal metrics to assess quantum functionality and superiority. Atos is also the first European patent holder in quantum computing.
