Atos and CSC empower the Finnish quantum research community with Atos Quantum Learning Machine

Paris, 19 May perhaps 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in digital transformation, now announces it has delivered its Atos Quantum Studying Machine, the world’s maximum-executing commercially accessible quantum simulator, to CSC – IT Heart for Science. The thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Studying Machine – known as Kvasi – provides the Finnish science and investigation neighborhood the signifies to get ready for the upcoming period of quantum computing.

This announcement marks a new phase in the partnership between Atos and CSC, which was initiated in 2018 with the signing of a contract for a supercomputer based on Atos’ architecture.

Now with the Atos QLM30, CSC provides collectively customers from academia and field, in buy to receive abilities and produce more experience in the industry of quantum computing. Atos QLM allows the innovative examine of apps of quantum principle, thereby making new technologies and solutions for a wide array of challenges.

“Kvasi will convey a novel and attention-grabbing addition to CSC’s computing setting. The quantum processor simulator allows mastering and design and style of quantum algorithms, supported by an bold user plan. All finish-customers of CSC’s computing expert services will have entry to Kvasi”, states Dr. Pekka Manninen, System Director, CSC.

The Atos QLM is a quantum simulation platform that is made up of an accessible programming setting, optimization modules to adapt the code to qualified quantum components constraints, and simulators that enable customers to test their algorithms and visualize their computation results. This permits for real looking simulation of existing and long term quantum processing units, which put up with from quantum sound, quantum decoherence, and producing biases. Performance bottlenecks can hence be identified and circumvented.

“We are proud to be regarded by CSC as a trusted companion and to reveal our ongoing commitment to the competitiveness of the Finnish investigation and tutorial neighborhood. The Atos Quantum Studying Machine will enable scientists, engineers and college students to produce and experiment with quantum software with no possessing to wait for quantum devices to be accessible”, states Harri Saikkonen, Handling Director, Atos in the Nordics.

Finland is at the forefront of quantum investigation. In 2016, Finnish and American scientists ended up the first in the world to notice and tie a quantum knot, utilizing CSC personal computers to drive important simulations. In 2020, scientists from CSC, Aalto College and Åbo Akademi and their collaborators from Boston College, demonstrated for the first time how the sound impacts on quantum computing in a systematic way.

In November 2016, Atos released an bold plan to foresee the long term of quantum computing and to be geared up for the options as effectively as the challenges that occur with it. As a consequence of this initiative, Atos was the first to successfully model quantum sound. To date, the corporation has set up Quantum Studying Devices in numerous international locations including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United kingdom, the United States and Japan empowering significant investigation systems in different sectors, this kind of as field or vitality.
