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

Paris, eighteen June 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in electronic transformation, CSC – IT Center for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum computers, announce the development of a partnership to build the 1st extensive a hundred% European quantum ecosystem which involves a simulator, a universal programming environment and quantum hardware.

As portion of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Studying Device (QLM) to supply a finish programming, compilation and execution environment for its quantum processor. IQM will also acquire gain of Atos QLM’s sophisticated hardware characterization tools, which include gate tomography and numerical sound modeling. In addition to experience, CSC will lead an Atos QLM to the initiative. Phase a single of the job, which is composed of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is by now underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

In just the last ten years, quantum computing has evolved from experimental curiosity to tangible technologies. By enabling engineers and students to acquire and experiment with quantum software package, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early programs. Put together with IQM’s hardware systems and CSC’s deep understanding of successful quantum technologies jobs, the partnership will convey the market place a phase closer to producing viable, simple and charge-helpful methods for specialised quantum programs in a wide variety of sectors. In the upcoming, quantum computing is anticipated to give an outstanding boost to investigation endeavours in fields such as artificial intelligence, molecular style and design of prescription drugs and eco-friendly catalysts, cyber protection, optimization methods for sensible vitality management and financial technologies.

“We feel that the swiftest way to make quantum computing a industrial fact is by way of collaborations throughout the ecosystem,” claims Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re excited to companion with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic youthful hardware companion which is relentlessly pushing the limits of quantum physics to develop Co-Layout Quantum Computers for precise programs.”

“As quantum technologies experienced in the upcoming couple of several years, the worth and possibilities for people will enhance. Acutely aware of what is at stake, governments throughout the globe are funding a number of investigation systems but the quantum revolution also necessitates for technologies leaders, educational and startups to cooperate in order to switch claims into a fact. Together with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the huge adoption of quantum technologies,” clarifies Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Application at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the prevalent ambition to build increaseed worth primarily based on the electric power of quantum computing. We are excited to be portion of this new partnership and glance forward to the new understanding that will spring from this do the job. As an outcome, we want to catalyze the research of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” claims Dr. Pekka Manninen, Application Director at CSC.
