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

Paris, 18 June 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in digital transformation, CSC – IT Heart for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum computer systems, announce the development of a partnership to develop the initially detailed one hundred% European quantum ecosystem which consists of a simulator, a universal programming ecosystem and quantum components.

As part of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Finding out Machine (QLM) to supply a finish programming, compilation and execution ecosystem for its quantum processor. IQM will also choose gain of Atos QLM’s innovative components characterization resources, including gate tomography and numerical noise modeling. In addition to expertise, CSC will contribute an Atos QLM to the initiative. Stage a person of the venture, which is made up of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is by now underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

Inside of the previous ten years, quantum computing has evolved from experimental curiosity to tangible know-how. By enabling engineers and pupils to establish and experiment with quantum program, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early apps. Mixed with IQM’s components methods and CSC’s deep knowledge of prosperous quantum know-how tasks, the partnership will provide the current market a action closer to creating viable, sensible and charge-effective answers for specialised quantum apps in a wide range of sectors. In the foreseeable future, quantum computing is envisioned to give an exceptional strengthen to research efforts in fields this sort of as synthetic intelligence, molecular structure of pharmaceuticals and inexperienced catalysts, cyber protection, optimization answers for smart electrical power administration and economical systems.

“We assume that the swiftest way to make quantum computing a business fact is as a result of collaborations across the ecosystem,” states Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re excited to lover with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic younger components lover that is relentlessly pushing the limits of quantum physics to create Co-Layout Quantum Pcs for specific apps.”

“As quantum systems mature in the up coming handful of many years, the price and options for people will increase. Mindful of what is at stake, governments across the world are funding various research applications but the quantum revolution also requires for know-how leaders, academic and startups to cooperate in get to convert claims into a fact. With each other with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the large adoption of quantum systems,” points out Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Application at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the popular ambition to develop incorporateed price dependent on the energy of quantum computing. We are excited to be part of this new partnership and appear ahead to the new knowledge that will spring from this function. As an outcome, we would like to catalyze the analyze of quantum algorithms by Finnish researchers,” states Dr. Pekka Manninen, Application Director at CSC.
