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

Paris, 18 June 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, CSC – IT Middle for Science and IQM, the European leader in superconducting quantum pcs, announce the formation of a partnership to make the 1st in depth 100% European quantum ecosystem which contains a simulator, a common programming setting and quantum components.

As component of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Understanding Machine (QLM) to offer a full programming, compilation and execution setting for its quantum processor. IQM will also take advantage of Atos QLM’s sophisticated components characterization tools, which includes gate tomography and numerical sound modeling. In addition to experience, CSC will add an Atos QLM to the initiative. Section just one of the task, which is composed of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is previously underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

In just the past ten years, quantum computing has evolved from experimental curiosity to tangible know-how. By enabling engineers and students to create and experiment with quantum software, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early programs. Combined with IQM’s components systems and CSC’s deep knowledge of prosperous quantum know-how initiatives, the partnership will bring the current market a stage closer to acquiring feasible, simple and price-efficient solutions for specialised quantum programs in a wide variety of sectors. In the foreseeable future, quantum computing is envisioned to deliver an excellent boost to investigation initiatives inside of fields these as synthetic intelligence, molecular style and design of prescribed drugs and green catalysts, cyber stability, optimization solutions for smart power administration and fiscal technologies.

“We feel that the swiftest way to make quantum computing a industrial truth is by means of collaborations across the ecosystem,” says Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic younger components partner that’s relentlessly pushing the restrictions of quantum physics to produce Co-Structure Quantum Pcs for particular programs.”

“As quantum technologies experienced in the upcoming few decades, the benefit and alternatives for buyers will boost. Conscious of what is at stake, governments across the globe are funding many investigation programs but the quantum revolution also calls for for know-how leaders, academic and startups to cooperate in get to change claims into a truth. Together with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the wide adoption of quantum technologies,” describes Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Application at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the frequent ambition to make increaseed benefit primarily based on the energy of quantum computing. We are excited to be component of this new partnership and look forward to the new knowledge that will spring from this function. As an outcome, we would like to catalyze the review of quantum algorithms by Finnish researchers,” says Dr. Pekka Manninen, Application Director at CSC.
