Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos right now officially inaugurates its new world Exploration & Progress Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the increased Paris metropolitan region (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts about 350 of Atos’ very certified engineers, presents a modern space devoted to exploration in quantum computing, substantial-general performance computing, edge, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and crafted on Atos’ present website at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs just about 1,000 men and women, this lab is a further milestone in Atos’ method to acquire and globally place the historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a solid heart of complex know-how. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration plan and the first key quantum field plan in Europe, benefits from an expense of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as section of its ‘Smart Industry’ method, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to assist the combat against world warming
Decarbonization is a vital priority for Atos. The organization is committed to lessening the world carbon emissions underneath its management and impact by fifty% by 2025 and to reach “zero net emissions”, by 2028. The exploration produced in this new laboratory, meeting the maximum environmental requirements, will aim on innovation to assist the combat against world warming, such as employing quantum calculation or the energy performance of supercomputers to speed up society’s journey to carbon neutrality. One more illustration is the improvement of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be able to forecast and improve energy consumption dependent on the workload and the energy available in the electrical energy providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony saw Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am happy to be section of this improvement of the field of the future in the Ile-de-France Area. This new making and expense display that we are preparing the future proper right here, proper now. We are committed to creating the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a electronic leader at the heart of the economic cloth. This new R&D lab is in line with our plans to promote the implementation and improvement of strategic technologies, in individual quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Area.”
“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Area, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab right now which illustrates far more than fifty several years of exploration perform carried out at our historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic website we will generate forward our ambitious quantum computing plan and acquire strategic technologies, products and solutions and methods that will be offered throughout the world, and that will aid condition a safe and sound, decarbonized future” said Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a world plan
The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration perform carried out as section of the Atos Quantum plan, launched in 2016, which aims to speed up the improvement of scientific and field-appropriate quantum computing use-instances. Atos scientists produced the Atos Quantum Studying Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s maximum-accomplishing commercially available quantum simulator, which is currently being utilized in quite a few countries throughout the world together with Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering key exploration systems in a variety of sectors like field or energy. Atos also not long ago launched “Q-score”, the first universal quantum metrics, applicable to all programmable quantum processors, actions a quantum system’s efficiency at dealing with real-daily life complications, instead than just measuring its theoretical general performance.
