Atos coordinates NEASQC, an ambitious European project to lead the future quantum computing revolution

Paris, 5 Oct 2020

Atos, a international leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European project NEASQC[1], whose ambition is to put together European enterprises for the age of quantum computing by discovering a wide variety of industrial and economical use cases, and related algorithms, suitable with NISQ[two] desktops, the very first quantum devices to be out there in the in the vicinity of potential. Atos will coordinate and do the job hand‑in‑hand with the eleven other companions, top industrial close-consumers and academic specialists from 8 European nations, to initiate an energetic European group all around NISQ Quantum Computing.

Although quantum desktops may possibly not however be completely ready, corporations seeking to tap into the power of quantum computing can now experiment by employing focused programming and simulation platforms, such as Atos’ Quantum Learning Equipment (Atos QLM). Even so, the deficiency of software libraries would make its quite difficult for non-specialist consumers to think about and anticipate the benefit that such an influx of computing power will provide.

NEASQC addresses this hole by investigating 9 industrial use cases that are possible to benefit drastically from NISQ quantum computing. These use cases include things like sensible complications that will specifically benefit European enterprises and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 seize, sensible energy management and pure language processing for example. The project will then build open up supply libraries necessary for people use cases, to stimulate industrial close-consumers to start off the move to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and manage the roll-out of the NEASQC project, top the person group that will be made up of the companions involved in quantum program developments, as effectively as exterior close-consumers of the NEASQC programming environment. Atos is also dependable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ features, within the ‘technology enablement’ aspect of the project.

In addition, Atos will present the quantum programming environment, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in absolutely free technique guarantees a comprehensive compatibility with the quantum processors created within the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will build and integrate open up supply NISQ software libraries in conjunction with the several use cases lined by the NEASQC project.

“As an international corporation with European roots, we are happy to assist the NEASQC project with our state-of-the-art systems and abilities in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the likely to change the sport in such fields as logistics, manufacturing, finance or energy but it requires to get the belief of consumers to notice that likely. The future number of years will be quite remarkable but also significant for people seeking to obtain good results in this discipline and we hope that our contribution will assistance placement European corporations at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” defined Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Method at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC project.

The 4-yr project has a finances of 4.67 million Euros, funded by less than the European Horizon2020 plan.
