Atos establishes Life Sciences Centre of Excellence to support researchers worldwide

London, United kingdom Paris, France – July 8 2020

Atos, a international leader in digital transformation, in agreement with the Wellcome Genome Campus, in Cambridgeshire, United kingdom, currently announces its international HPC, AI & Quantum Everyday living Sciences Centre of Excellence in get to offer organisations on Campus, and international genome and bio-info institutes throughout the world, obtain to emerging HPC, AI & Quantum technologies.

The Atos Everyday living Sciences Centre of Excellence will complement the current Campus compute services with obtain to leading-edge technologies, such as Quantum, Higher Effectiveness Computing and AI, supported by Atos’ solutions, solutions and abilities in these sectors. Atos specialists will collaborate specifically with genome and organic info exploration experts to support improve Everyday living Sciences discovery and innovation.

“I am delighted that Atos is joining our Campus community, delivering larger perception into biodata at exceptional speeds and efficacy will lead to revolutionary new methodologies and solutions, as very well as decreasing the exploration-to-merchandise development journey generating a important good effect for the a variety of places of lifetime sciences”, said Dr Julia Wilson, Affiliate Director, Wellcome Genome Campus.

 “With important development ideas in place Atos will swiftly develop into a important associate inside of our Campus community. Now is the time to electric power our exploration by the used use of revolutionary technological know-how that could tremendously advance biodata exploration. This will lead to larger alternatives to translate exploration into tangible societal benefits”, extra Dr Jo Mills, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Centre Supervisor, Wellcome Genome Campus.

In this Centre, researchers and technologists throughout the world will examine the unique usages of technologies such as Quantum, Higher Effectiveness Computing and AI by a broad range of actions such as evidence of idea output, innovation workshops, courses and conferences.

Atos Quantum Mastering Equipment, the world’s optimum-doing commercially accessible quantum simulator, is now aiding the exploration evaluation ability of organizations together with Bayer in Germany, the Centre of Computation  Research and Technological know-how (CCRT) at the CEA in France, The Hartree Centre in United kingdom and Oak Ridge Nationwide Laboratory in the US.

Scientists will also be equipped to profit from Atos’ impressive BullSequana X supercomputers, which deliver higher-performance computing electric power to assistance researchers attain results quicker. They are becoming made use of currently throughout the world to assistance the present combat in opposition to Covid-19.

Pierre Barnabé, Senior Govt Vice-President, Head of Big Facts & Cybersecurity at Atos, said: “We are delighted to establish the Centre, as the potential for collaborative option with Everyday living Sciences institutes globally is monumental. Quantum, Higher Effectiveness Computing as very well as edge computing assisted by synthetic intelligence hold exciting, transformative potential for the lifetime sciences sector, and we are searching forward to making use of these in authentic environment situations by combining exploration abilities with our technological abilities to unlock option.”

The Centre is now working remotely and is supplying assistance to researchers throughout the world learning lots of unique aspects of Covid-19 such as characterizing the composition of SARS-CoV-two to greater comprehend its mechanisms of an infection or modelling the spread of the disorder by using mathematical solutions.

Furthermore, two demos are becoming produced which unlock the price of HPC and AI to design cardiovascular anomalies and to accelerate the interpretation of healthcare treatments. These will be showcased as shortly as the Centre opens its doorways.
