Paris, 5 October 2020
Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, announces its participation in the European undertaking NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to prepare European businesses for the age of quantum computing by checking out a huge variety of industrial and economical use situations, and associated algorithms, compatible with NISQ[two] desktops, the initial quantum programs to be obtainable in the close to potential. Atos will coordinate and do the job hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other companions, foremost industrial end-users and educational professionals from eight European international locations, to initiate an energetic European community close to NISQ Quantum Computing.
Whilst quantum desktops may possibly not nevertheless be completely ready, corporations searching to faucet into the electric power of quantum computing can presently experiment by employing committed programming and simulation platforms, such as Atos’ Quantum Mastering Device (Atos QLM). Even so, the lack of application libraries can make its extremely hard for non-professional users to think about and anticipate the value that such an influx of computing electric power will bring.
NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating 9 industrial use situations that are probable to advantage appreciably from NISQ quantum computing. These use situations include useful issues that will directly advantage European businesses and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 capture, wise energy management and pure language processing for example. The undertaking will then produce open up supply libraries essential for individuals use situations, to stimulate industrial end-users to start off the transfer to quantum computing.
Atos will coordinate and take care of the roll-out of the NEASQC undertaking, foremost the person team that will be manufactured up of the companions concerned in quantum software package developments, as well as external end-users of the NEASQC programming environment. Atos is also responsible for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ aspects, in just the ‘technology enablement’ component of the undertaking.
In addition, Atos will provide the quantum programming environment, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in cost-free strategy guarantees a total compatibility with the quantum processors formulated in just the European Flagship on Quantum Systems. Atos will produce and integrate open up supply NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the numerous use situations lined by the NEASQC undertaking.
“As an intercontinental firm with European roots, we are proud to assistance the NEASQC undertaking with our advanced systems and knowledge in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to transform the recreation in such fields as logistics, production, finance or energy but it desires to obtain the believe in of users to notice that probable. The future few decades will be extremely thrilling but also important for individuals searching to realize good results in this discipline and we hope that our contribution will assist placement European corporations at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” explained Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Method at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC undertaking.
The 4-calendar year undertaking has a budget of 4.67 million Euros, funded by underneath the European Horizon2020 method.
