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 global Exploration & Development Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the higher Paris metropolitan spot (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts all-around 350 of Atos’ extremely qualified engineers, gives a contemporary place focused to investigation in quantum computing, large-performance computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and created on Atos’ current web site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs nearly 1,000 people, this lab is a different milestone in Atos’ strategy to build and globally posture the historical web site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a strong centre of technical expertise. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing investigation program and the initially important quantum field program in Europe, advantages from an investment of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as portion of its ‘Smart Industry’ strategy, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to guidance the struggle from global warming

Decarbonization is a key precedence for Atos. The organization is dedicated to lowering the global carbon emissions below its manage and affect by fifty% by 2025 and to reach “zero web emissions”, by 2028. The investigation formulated in this new laboratory, conference the greatest environmental standards, will concentrate on innovation to guidance the struggle from global warming, this sort of as applying quantum calculation or the electricity effectiveness of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. An additional example is the growth of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be in a position to predict and optimize electricity intake based on the workload and the electricity obtainable in the electrical power providers’ grids.

Inauguration Ceremony

The inauguration ceremony observed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be portion of this growth of the field of the long run in the Ile-de-France Area. This new setting up and investment display that we are planning the long run appropriate in this article, appropriate now. We are dedicated to earning the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a electronic chief at the heart of the financial material. This new R&D lab is in line with our designs to encourage the implementation and growth of strategic technologies, in unique quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Area.”

“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Area, I am thrilled to officially open our new R&D Lab currently which illustrates a lot more than fifty a long time of investigation work carried out at our historical web site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic web site we will drive forward our formidable quantum computing program and build strategic technologies, merchandise and remedies that will be marketed worldwide, and that will enable shape a protected, decarbonized future” mentioned Elie Girard, CEO Atos.

Atos Quantum: a global program

The R&D lab will accommodate the investigation work conducted as portion of the Atos Quantum program, introduced in 2016, which aims to accelerate the growth of scientific and field-suitable quantum computing use-instances. Atos researchers formulated the Atos Quantum Learning Device (Atos QLM), the world’s greatest-undertaking commercially obtainable quantum simulator, which is now getting utilized in a lot of nations around the world worldwide including Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Uk and the United States, empowering important investigation courses in numerous sectors like field or electricity. Atos also lately introduced “Q-rating”, the initially universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, steps a quantum system’s success at managing serious-everyday living challenges, rather than simply measuring its theoretical performance.

Elie Girard and Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Regional Council, focus on the new lab, adopted by a digital pay a visit to of the new web site with Philippe Guiguen, Mayor of Clayes-sous-Bois and the total Atos crew: Sophie Proust, CTO Pierre Barnabé, Head of Major Facts and Cybersecurity Arnaud Bertrand, Director of Tactic and Innovation Major Facts and Cybersecurity Agnes Boudot, Director of HPC, AI & Quantum actions and Cyril Allouche, R&D Director, Quantum Computing.
