Paris, 19 May possibly 2020

Atos, a international leader in digital transformation, nowadays announces it has shipped its Atos Quantum Studying Machine, the world’s highest-undertaking commercially out there quantum simulator, to CSC – IT Center for Science. The thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Studying Machine – known as Kvasi – offers the Finnish science and investigation community the usually means to prepare for the approaching era of quantum computing.

This announcement marks a new action in the partnership between Atos and CSC, which was initiated in 2018 with the signing of a contract for a supercomputer based mostly on Atos’ architecture.

Now with the Atos QLM30, CSC provides collectively customers from academia and field, in purchase to obtain abilities and develop additional knowledge in the field of quantum computing. Atos QLM allows the advanced research of applications of quantum theory, thereby building new technologies and alternatives for a huge vary of challenges.

“Kvasi will provide a novel and intriguing addition to CSC’s computing ecosystem. The quantum processor simulator allows mastering and layout of quantum algorithms, supported by an ambitious person plan. All close-customers of CSC’s computing providers will have access to Kvasi”, claims Dr. Pekka Manninen, Program Director, CSC.

The Atos QLM is a quantum simulation system that is composed of an accessible programming ecosystem, optimization modules to adapt the code to targeted quantum hardware constraints, and simulators that allow for customers to examination their algorithms and visualize their computation effects. This permits for realistic simulation of current and potential quantum processing units, which endure from quantum sounds, quantum decoherence, and producing biases. General performance bottlenecks can hence be discovered and circumvented.

“We are happy to be regarded by CSC as a dependable spouse and to reveal our ongoing commitment to the competitiveness of the Finnish investigation and educational community. The Atos Quantum Studying Machine will allow for researchers, engineers and learners to develop and experiment with quantum software package devoid of getting to wait around for quantum equipment to be out there”, claims Harri Saikkonen, Running Director, Atos in the Nordics.

Finland is at the forefront of quantum investigation. In 2016, Finnish and American researchers were being the very first in the planet to notice and tie a quantum knot, making use of CSC computer systems to travel key simulations. In 2020, researchers from CSC, Aalto University and Åbo Akademi and their collaborators from Boston University, shown for the very first time how the sounds impacts on quantum computing in a systematic way.

In November 2016, Atos introduced an ambitious plan to anticipate the potential of quantum computing and to be prepared for the opportunities as properly as the hazards that appear with it. As a outcome of this initiative, Atos was the very first to successfully design quantum sounds. To date, the business has installed Quantum Studying Machines in several international locations including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the British isles, the United States and Japan empowering key investigation packages in different sectors, these kinds of as field or strength.
