Paris, 5 October 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in digital transformation, announces its participation in the European venture NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to put together European firms for the age of quantum computing by exploring a broad selection of industrial and monetary use conditions, and involved algorithms, compatible with NISQ[two] desktops, the first quantum techniques to be accessible in the close to upcoming. Atos will coordinate and get the job done hand‑in‑hand with the eleven other associates, top industrial close-customers and academic industry experts from 8 European nations around the world, to initiate an active European group all-around NISQ Quantum Computing.

When quantum desktops may not however be completely ready, companies on the lookout to tap into the ability of quantum computing can previously experiment by working with dedicated programming and simulation platforms, these kinds of as Atos’ Quantum Understanding Device (Atos QLM). On the other hand, the lack of application libraries helps make its very difficult for non-qualified customers to envision and anticipate the worth that these kinds of an inflow of computing ability will carry.

NEASQC addresses this hole by investigating nine industrial use conditions that are very likely to gain drastically from NISQ quantum computing. These use conditions incorporate practical troubles that will right gain European firms and citizens: drug discovery, breast most cancers detection, CO2 capture, good vitality administration and normal language processing for case in point. The venture will then acquire open supply libraries wanted for these use conditions, to inspire industrial close-customers to start out the transfer to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and control the roll-out of the NEASQC venture, top the person group that will be manufactured up of the associates concerned in quantum software program developments, as effectively as external close-customers of the NEASQC programming ecosystem. Atos is also liable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ aspects, within just the ‘technology enablement’ element of the venture.

In addition, Atos will give the quantum programming ecosystem, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in free of charge technique assures a whole compatibility with the quantum processors designed within just the European Flagship on Quantum Systems. Atos will acquire and combine open supply NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the many use conditions included by the NEASQC venture.

“As an worldwide company with European roots, we are happy to guidance the NEASQC venture with our advanced systems and expertise in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to improve the activity in these kinds of fields as logistics, producing, finance or vitality but it wants to obtain the have faith in of customers to recognize that probable. The future several a long time will be very enjoyable but also essential for these on the lookout to obtain good results in this industry and we hope that our contribution will help position European companies at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” stated Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Plan at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC venture.

The four-yr venture has a spending plan of four.sixty seven million Euros, funded by below the European Horizon2020 system.
