Paris, five October 2020

Atos, a world-wide leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European task NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to put together European companies for the age of quantum computing by discovering a huge choice of industrial and monetary use situations, and affiliated algorithms, appropriate with NISQ[two] computers, the very first quantum units to be obtainable in the near upcoming. Atos will coordinate and perform hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other associates, major industrial conclude-buyers and educational specialists from eight European international locations, to initiate an active European local community all-around NISQ Quantum Computing.

When quantum computers may not still be prepared, companies looking to tap into the electricity of quantum computing can currently experiment by using devoted programming and simulation platforms, such as Atos’ Quantum Finding out Device (Atos QLM). Even so, the lack of software libraries would make its extremely tricky for non-skilled buyers to consider and foresee the value that such an inflow of computing electricity will convey.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating 9 industrial use situations that are probable to profit noticeably from NISQ quantum computing. These use situations include things like realistic issues that will right profit European companies and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 seize, intelligent electricity administration and organic language processing for example. The task will then produce open source libraries wanted for these use situations, to motivate industrial conclude-buyers to start out the transfer to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and handle the roll-out of the NEASQC task, major the person group that will be produced up of the associates included in quantum computer software developments, as nicely as external conclude-buyers of the NEASQC programming atmosphere. Atos is also responsible for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ features, inside the ‘technology enablement’ section of the task.

In addition, Atos will deliver the quantum programming atmosphere, Atos myQLM, whose vendor lock-in no cost method ensures a complete compatibility with the quantum processors designed inside the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will produce and combine open source NISQ software libraries in conjunction with the various use situations protected by the NEASQC task.

“As an international company with European roots, we are proud to support the NEASQC task with our superior technologies and expertise in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to adjust the activity in such fields as logistics, producing, finance or electricity but it requires to get the belief of buyers to recognize that probable. The following number of a long time will be extremely interesting but also essential for these looking to accomplish success in this area and we hope that our contribution will help place European companies at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” defined Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Method at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC task.

The 4-year task has a finances of 4.67 million Euros, funded by beneath the European Horizon2020 method.
