Imagination at work

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

Paris, 18 June 2020

Atos, a international chief in digital transformation, CSC – IT Centre for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum personal computers, announce the formation of a partnership to develop the very first extensive one hundred% European quantum ecosystem which contains a simulator, a common programming surroundings and quantum hardware.

As section of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Finding out Machine (QLM) to give a full programming, compilation and execution surroundings for its quantum processor. IQM will also take edge of Atos QLM’s innovative hardware characterization instruments, such as gate tomography and numerical noise modeling. In addition to experience, CSC will contribute an Atos QLM to the initiative. Phase one of the undertaking, which is composed of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is by now underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

Within just the very last ten years, quantum computing has progressed from experimental curiosity to tangible engineering. By enabling engineers and learners to develop and experiment with quantum computer software, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early purposes. Merged with IQM’s hardware techniques and CSC’s deep knowing of thriving quantum engineering tasks, the partnership will convey the market a action nearer to establishing viable, practical and price tag-effective options for specialised quantum purposes in a assortment of sectors. In the potential, quantum computing is envisioned to present an fantastic enhance to research attempts in fields these as artificial intelligence, molecular structure of prescription drugs and green catalysts, cyber stability, optimization options for sensible vitality management and economic technologies.

“We consider that the fastest way to make quantum computing a commercial fact is by collaborations across the ecosystem,” says Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re psyched to associate with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic young hardware associate that is relentlessly pushing the restrictions of quantum physics to create Co-Style and design Quantum Computer systems for certain purposes.”

“As quantum technologies mature in the upcoming several yrs, the benefit and opportunities for customers will increase. Aware of what is at stake, governments across the globe are funding several research programs but the quantum revolution also needs for engineering leaders, tutorial and startups to cooperate in purchase to flip claims into a fact. Alongside one another with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the extensive adoption of quantum technologies,” explains Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Plan at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the frequent ambition to develop incorporateed benefit dependent on the power of quantum computing. We are psyched to be section of this new partnership and glance ahead to the new knowing that will spring from this work. As an final result, we would like to catalyze the analyze of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” says Dr. Pekka Manninen, Plan Director at CSC.
