Atos establishes Life Sciences Centre of Excellence to support researchers worldwide

London, British isles Paris, France – July 8 2020

Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, in arrangement with the Wellcome Genome Campus, in Cambridgeshire, British isles, right now announces its global HPC, AI & Quantum Existence Sciences Centre of Excellence in purchase to supply organisations on Campus, and global genome and bio-knowledge institutes around the world, entry to rising HPC, AI & Quantum technologies.

The Atos Existence Sciences Centre of Excellence will complement the existing Campus compute facilities with entry to major-edge technologies, these kinds of as Quantum, High General performance Computing and AI, supported by Atos’ merchandise, providers and expertise in these sectors. Atos gurus will collaborate directly with genome and organic knowledge study experts to assistance improve Existence Sciences discovery and innovation.

“I am delighted that Atos is becoming a member of our Campus group, delivering increased perception into biodata at excellent speeds and efficacy will direct to revolutionary new methodologies and merchandise, as properly as decreasing the study-to-product or service improvement journey building a substantial positive effect for the many locations of daily life sciences”, reported Dr Julia Wilson, Associate Director, Wellcome Genome Campus.

 “With substantial improvement designs in location Atos will speedily come to be a important husband or wife inside of our Campus group. Now is the time to ability our study by way of the used use of revolutionary engineering that could significantly advance biodata study. This will direct to increased options to translate study into tangible societal benefits”, added Dr Jo Mills, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Centre Supervisor, Wellcome Genome Campus.

In this Centre, researchers and technologists around the world will check out the different usages of technologies these kinds of as Quantum, High General performance Computing and AI by way of a broad variety of routines these kinds of as proof of notion creation, innovation workshops, courses and conferences.

Atos Quantum Finding out Device, the world’s optimum-performing commercially accessible quantum simulator, is already aiding the study investigation capacity of businesses which include Bayer in Germany, the Centre of Computation  Research and Technology (CCRT) at the CEA in France, The Hartree Centre in British isles and Oak Ridge Nationwide Laboratory in the US.

Scientists will also be capable to reward from Atos’ highly effective BullSequana X supercomputers, which deliver higher-general performance computing ability to assistance researchers achieve outcomes a lot quicker. They are remaining employed right now across the world to assistance the recent struggle in opposition to Covid-19.

Pierre Barnabé, Senior Executive Vice-President, Head of Significant Information & Cybersecurity at Atos, reported: “We are delighted to build the Centre, as the probable for collaborative possibility with Existence Sciences institutes globally is huge. Quantum, High General performance Computing as properly as edge computing assisted by synthetic intelligence keep thrilling, transformative probable for the daily life sciences sector, and we are looking forward to making use of these in true world scenarios by combining study expertise with our technological expertise to unlock possibility.”

The Centre is already working remotely and is providing assistance to researchers around the world finding out a lot of different areas of Covid-19 these kinds of as characterizing the structure of SARS-CoV-2 to far better have an understanding of its mechanisms of infection or modelling the distribute of the illness by employing mathematical methods.

In addition, two demos are remaining produced which unlock the benefit of HPC and AI to product cardiovascular anomalies and to speed up the interpretation of professional medical treatments. These will be showcased as quickly as the Centre opens its doors.
