Atos delivers its first GPU-accelerated Quantum Learning Machine to the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC)

Dublin, Eire and Paris, France – 17 December 2020

Atos currently announces it will deliver its initial GPU-accelerated Atos Quantum Finding out Device Improved (Atos QLM E), the world’s best-performing commercially out there quantum simulator, to the Irish Centre for High-Stop Computing (ICHEC).

The Atos QLM E will be built-in with the Irish countrywide supercomputer ‘Kay’ and equipped with a wide range of quantum application programming instruments. As a hybrid HPC-Quantum Computing environment, the built-in Kay-Atos QLM E platform will provide the Quantum Programming Eire (QPI) Initiative for conducting R&D and countrywide-stage expertise advancement pursuits in quantum technologies by ICHEC as effectively as other Irish corporations in educational, organization and community sector.

Providing up to 12 occasions much more computation velocity than the first Atos QLM, the Atos QLM E is also an integral part of the ‘NEASQC’ job, in the €1 bn European flagship quantum initiative, of which Eire is a partner alongside with eleven other European businesses and investigation labs, and coordinated by Atos.

After the Atos QLM E is delivered on-premise, Atos will give a speedy-keep track of coaching system and carry on to enhance the process in the course of its lifetime to ensure that it delivers the operation expected in this speedy-transferring willpower of quantum computing.

Prof. Jean-Christophe (“JC”) Desplat, Director at ICHEC, reported: “As Ireland’s high overall performance computing authority, we’re dedicated to using the electric power of technologies to solve some of the hardest challenges throughout community, educational and organization sectors. Operating with a amount of partners throughout Europe, we glance forward to utilizing the Atos QLM E associated for R&D on a amount of scientific and sector-related quantum computing use-cases and supporting scientific breakthroughs in high-overall performance computing.”

Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, reported: “As the initial Atos QLM E deployed globally, this partnership marks an critical milestone in our Quantum System. We glance forward to supporting ICHEC on their quantum journey, supporting them investigate with their people the large probable that quantum computing features. The solution will give a scalable, long term-proof, countrywide framework for the porting of hybrid programs, and for the coaching and expertise advancement of Irish scientists, and ICHEC’s partners throughout Europe.”

Atos QLM E has been optimized to considerably reduce the simulation time of hybrid classical-quantum algorithms simulations, leading to faster progress in application investigation.

Atos, a pioneer in quantum

In 2016, Atos launched ‘Atos Quantum’ an formidable system to foresee the long term of quantum computing. As a end result of this initiative, Atos was the initial corporation to present a quantum sound simulation module in just its Atos QLM present. Atos QLM is staying made use of in quite a few countries around the world including Austria, Finland, France, Germany, India,  Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Senegal, UK and the United States, empowering key investigation programs in various sectors like sector or vitality. Lately, Atos launched “Q-score”, the initial common quantum metrics reference, applicable to all programmable quantum processors.
