Paris, five Oct 2020

Atos, a world-wide chief in digital transformation, announces its participation in the European undertaking NEASQC[1], whose ambition is to get ready European companies for the age of quantum computing by exploring a vast selection of industrial and fiscal use scenarios, and associated algorithms, appropriate with NISQ[two] desktops, the very first quantum programs to be readily available in the near potential. Atos will coordinate and perform hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other companions, main industrial close-buyers and educational industry experts from eight European international locations, to initiate an lively European neighborhood around NISQ Quantum Computing.

When quantum desktops may possibly not still be completely ready, companies searching to faucet into the electric power of quantum computing can previously experiment by employing committed programming and simulation platforms, these types of as Atos’ Quantum Mastering Device (Atos QLM). Having said that, the lack of application libraries makes its really complicated for non-skilled buyers to envision and anticipate the price that these types of an influx of computing electric power will deliver.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating 9 industrial use scenarios that are probable to profit drastically from NISQ quantum computing. These use scenarios incorporate sensible complications that will immediately profit European companies and citizens: drug discovery, breast most cancers detection, CO2 seize, clever electricity administration and pure language processing for case in point. The undertaking will then acquire open up supply libraries necessary for all those use scenarios, to really encourage industrial close-buyers to start out the shift to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and take care of the roll-out of the NEASQC undertaking, main the consumer team that will be built up of the companions associated in quantum computer software developments, as effectively as exterior close-buyers of the NEASQC programming natural environment. Atos is also responsible for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ factors, within just the ‘technology enablement’ component of the undertaking.

In addition, Atos will give the quantum programming natural environment, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in cost-free tactic ensures a comprehensive compatibility with the quantum processors created within just the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will acquire and combine open up supply NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the several use scenarios coated by the NEASQC undertaking.

“As an worldwide organization with European roots, we are proud to help the NEASQC undertaking with our innovative systems and experience in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to modify the activity in these types of fields as logistics, production, finance or electricity but it desires to achieve the belief of buyers to know that probable. The next couple of yrs will be really interesting but also crucial for all those searching to accomplish success in this field and we hope that our contribution will help placement European companies at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” described Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Program at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC undertaking.

The 4-yr undertaking has a price range of 4.sixty seven million Euros, funded by underneath the European Horizon2020 software.
