Dublin, Eire and Paris, France – seventeen December 2020

Atos today announces it will provide its 1st GPU-accelerated Atos Quantum Learning Equipment Increased (Atos QLM E), the world’s highest-undertaking commercially accessible quantum simulator, to the Irish Centre for High-Conclude Computing (ICHEC).

The Atos QLM E will be integrated with the Irish countrywide supercomputer ‘Kay’ and equipped with a wide range of quantum application programming equipment. As a hybrid HPC-Quantum Computing atmosphere, the integrated Kay-Atos QLM E platform will serve the Quantum Programming Eire (QPI) Initiative for conducting R&D and countrywide-level skills growth pursuits in quantum technologies by ICHEC as very well as other Irish businesses in academic, enterprise and public sector.

Featuring up to twelve situations more computation pace than the primary Atos QLM, the Atos QLM E is also an integral ingredient of the ‘NEASQC’ project, in the €1 bn European flagship quantum initiative, of which Eire is a associate together with 11 other European providers and research labs, and coordinated by Atos.

When the Atos QLM E is sent on-premise, Atos will provide a rapid-keep track of teaching method and proceed to boost the technique all over its life time to make sure that it delivers the functionality demanded in this rapid-shifting self-discipline of quantum computing.

Prof. Jean-Christophe (“JC”) Desplat, Director at ICHEC, explained: “As Ireland’s significant functionality computing authority, we’re fully commited to working with the electric power of technological innovation to remedy some of the toughest problems across public, academic and enterprise sectors. Operating with a number of associates across Europe, we look ahead to employing the Atos QLM E similar for R&D on a number of scientific and business-relevant quantum computing use-cases and supporting scientific breakthroughs in significant-functionality computing.”

Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, explained: “As the 1st Atos QLM E deployed globally, this partnership marks an important milestone in our Quantum Method. We look ahead to supporting ICHEC on their quantum journey, supporting them check out with their end users the enormous possible that quantum computing presents. The remedy will provide a scalable, foreseeable future-evidence, countrywide framework for the porting of hybrid programs, and for the teaching and skills growth of Irish scientists, and ICHEC’s associates across Europe.”

Atos QLM E has been optimized to significantly cut down the simulation time of hybrid classical-quantum algorithms simulations, primary to quicker development in application research.

Atos, a pioneer in quantum

In 2016, Atos launched ‘Atos Quantum’ an bold method to foresee the foreseeable future of quantum computing. As a result of this initiative, Atos was the 1st corporation to supply a quantum noise simulation module in just its Atos QLM supply. Atos QLM is being applied in various nations around the globe including Austria, Finland, France, Germany, India,  Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Senegal, UK and the United States, empowering key research programs in many sectors like business or power. Lately, Atos released “Q-score”, the 1st common quantum metrics reference, applicable to all programmable quantum processors.
