Atos coordinates NEASQC, an ambitious European project to lead the future quantum computing revolution

Paris, five Oct 2020

Atos, a world chief in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European undertaking NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to prepare European corporations for the age of quantum computing by exploring a wide choice of industrial and economic use cases, and involved algorithms, appropriate with NISQ[2] computer systems, the to start with quantum devices to be out there in the in the vicinity of upcoming. Atos will coordinate and operate hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other associates, major industrial conclude-customers and tutorial specialists from 8 European countries, to initiate an active European community close to NISQ Quantum Computing.

While quantum computer systems may well not still be prepared, companies hunting to tap into the power of quantum computing can now experiment by applying focused programming and simulation platforms, these types of as Atos’ Quantum Finding out Machine (Atos QLM). However, the lack of application libraries can make its pretty hard for non-pro customers to consider and foresee the price that these types of an inflow of computing power will provide.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating 9 industrial use cases that are probable to gain appreciably from NISQ quantum computing. These use cases incorporate realistic problems that will specifically gain European corporations and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 seize, sensible vitality administration and all-natural language processing for illustration. The undertaking will then acquire open up supply libraries essential for these use cases, to inspire industrial conclude-customers to start the move to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and deal with the roll-out of the NEASQC undertaking, major the user group that will be designed up of the associates included in quantum software program developments, as effectively as exterior conclude-customers of the NEASQC programming atmosphere. Atos is also accountable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ factors, inside of the ‘technology enablement’ section of the undertaking.

In addition, Atos will present the quantum programming atmosphere, Atos myQLM, whose vendor lock-in absolutely free approach guarantees a complete compatibility with the quantum processors made inside of the European Flagship on Quantum Systems. Atos will acquire and combine open up supply NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the many use cases covered by the NEASQC undertaking.

“As an intercontinental organization with European roots, we are very pleased to support the NEASQC undertaking with our advanced systems and expertise in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the possible to transform the recreation in these types of fields as logistics, production, finance or vitality but it requires to acquire the belief of customers to recognize that possible. The upcoming handful of many years will be pretty interesting but also vital for these hunting to reach achievement in this field and we hope that our contribution will support situation 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 undertaking.

The four-yr undertaking has a funds of four.67 million Euros, funded by below the European Horizon2020 system.
