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

Paris, 5 Oct 2020

Atos, a world-wide leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European challenge NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to put together European organizations for the age of quantum computing by checking out a huge range of industrial and fiscal use circumstances, and affiliated algorithms, appropriate with NISQ[two] computer systems, the first quantum techniques to be readily available in the near future. Atos will coordinate and work hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other associates, foremost industrial close-buyers and academic experts from 8 European international locations, to initiate an energetic European neighborhood around NISQ Quantum Computing.

When quantum computer systems may perhaps not however be completely ready, businesses on the lookout to tap into the electric power of quantum computing can by now experiment by using committed programming and simulation platforms, these as Atos’ Quantum Studying Equipment (Atos QLM). Having said that, the absence of application libraries tends to make its quite challenging for non-specialist buyers to picture and anticipate the price that these an inflow of computing electric power will provide.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating nine industrial use circumstances that are possible to benefit substantially from NISQ quantum computing. These use circumstances include realistic problems that will right benefit European organizations and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 seize, wise power administration and natural language processing for illustration. The challenge will then produce open up source libraries required for those use circumstances, to really encourage industrial close-buyers to commence the transfer to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and manage the roll-out of the NEASQC challenge, foremost the consumer group that will be made up of the associates involved in quantum application developments, as well as exterior close-buyers of the NEASQC programming setting. Atos is also accountable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ elements, in just the ‘technology enablement’ portion of the challenge.

In addition, Atos will give the quantum programming setting, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in free of charge solution assures a whole compatibility with the quantum processors designed in just the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will produce and combine open up source NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the a variety of use circumstances lined by the NEASQC challenge.

“As an worldwide organization with European roots, we are proud to support the NEASQC challenge with our innovative technologies and abilities in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to improve the game in these fields as logistics, production, finance or power but it requires to acquire the trust of buyers to understand that probable. The future few years will be quite fascinating but also vital for those on the lookout to obtain achievements in this field and we hope that our contribution will aid posture European businesses at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” explained Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Plan at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC challenge.

The 4-calendar year challenge has a funds of 4.sixty seven million Euros, funded by under the European Horizon2020 method.
