Atos unveils global R&D Lab to drive innovation in Cybersecurity, High Performance Computing and Quantum

Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), FranceApril 22, 2021

Atos currently officially inaugurates its new world Study & Growth Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the greater Paris metropolitan area (Yvelines), France. The new 8,000 m2 lab, which hosts all-around 350 of Atos’ hugely competent engineers, supplies a modern day area committed to analysis in quantum computing, substantial-general performance computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and crafted on Atos’ present site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs pretty much one,000 persons, this lab is an additional milestone in Atos’ strategy to establish and globally situation the historic site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a powerful heart of technological knowledge. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing analysis program and the initially significant quantum marketplace program in Europe, rewards from an investment decision of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as element of its ‘Smart Industry’ strategy, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to aid the fight from world warming

Decarbonization is a important precedence for Atos. The firm is committed to lowering the world carbon emissions below its command and influence by fifty% by 2025 and to achieve “zero net emissions”, by 2028. The analysis created in this new laboratory, assembly the maximum environmental standards, will aim on innovation to aid the fight from world warming, these types of as utilizing quantum calculation or the strength effectiveness of supercomputers to speed up society’s journey to carbon neutrality. An additional case in point is the progress of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be ready to predict and optimize strength consumption based mostly on the workload and the strength out there in the electricity providers’ grids.

Inauguration Ceremony

The inauguration ceremony noticed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am very pleased to be element of this progress of the marketplace of the long run in the Ile-de-France Area. This new setting up and investment decision display that we are preparing the long run proper right here, proper now. We are committed to earning the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a electronic leader at the heart of the financial material. This new R&D lab is in line with our programs to advertise the implementation and progress of strategic systems, in unique quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Area.”

“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Area, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab currently which illustrates much more than fifty decades of analysis operate carried out at our historic site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic site we will travel forward our bold quantum computing program and establish strategic systems, merchandise and alternatives that will be bought all over the world, and that will aid shape a risk-free, decarbonized future” stated Elie Girard, CEO Atos.

Atos Quantum: a world program

The R&D lab will accommodate the analysis operate conducted as element of the Atos Quantum program, introduced in 2016, which aims to speed up the progress of scientific and marketplace-related quantum computing use-cases. Atos researchers created the Atos Quantum Studying Device (Atos QLM), the world’s maximum-carrying out commercially out there quantum simulator, which is by now getting applied in a lot of international locations all over the world together with Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering significant analysis plans in various sectors like marketplace or strength. Atos also a short while ago introduced “Q-score”, the initially universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, actions a quantum system’s success at handling genuine-life difficulties, rather than only measuring its theoretical general performance.
