Atos, CSC and IQM partner to accelerate the commercialization of European quantum technologies

Paris, 18 June 2020

Atos, a world chief in digital transformation, CSC – IT Center for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum personal computers, announce the development of a partnership to make the very first in depth 100{d5f2c26e8a2617525656064194f8a7abd2a56a02c0e102ae4b29477986671105} European quantum ecosystem which contains a simulator, a common programming atmosphere and quantum hardware.

As portion of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Understanding Machine (QLM) to supply a finish programming, compilation and execution atmosphere for its quantum processor. IQM will also get benefit of Atos QLM’s superior hardware characterization applications, which includes gate tomography and numerical noise modeling. In addition to abilities, CSC will add an Atos QLM to the initiative. Stage one particular of the undertaking, which is composed of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is previously underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

In the previous 10 years, quantum computing has advanced from experimental curiosity to tangible technologies. By enabling engineers and pupils to develop and experiment with quantum software package, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early apps. Put together with IQM’s hardware units and CSC’s deep comprehension of profitable quantum technologies jobs, the partnership will convey the sector a step nearer to building viable, realistic and charge-powerful methods for specialized quantum apps in a wide range of sectors. In the foreseeable future, quantum computing is envisioned to present an fantastic raise to analysis efforts inside fields these as artificial intelligence, molecular style and design of prescribed drugs and inexperienced catalysts, cyber stability, optimization methods for sensible strength management and financial systems.

“We think that the quickest way to make quantum computing a industrial actuality is as a result of collaborations across the ecosystem,” states Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re fired up to associate with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic young hardware associate that’s relentlessly pushing the limitations of quantum physics to deliver Co-Structure Quantum Personal computers for precise apps.”

“As quantum systems experienced in the following couple many years, the benefit and alternatives for consumers will increase. Mindful of what is at stake, governments across the globe are funding several analysis programs but the quantum revolution also involves for technologies leaders, tutorial and startups to cooperate in get to convert promises into a actuality. Alongside one another with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the extensive adoption of quantum systems,” points out Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Application at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the typical ambition to make added benefit based on the electrical power of quantum computing. We are fired up to be portion of this new partnership and appear forward to the new comprehension that will spring from this operate. As an result, we want to catalyze the research of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” states Dr. Pekka Manninen, Application Director at CSC.
