Atos right now officially inaugurates its new world wide Investigate & Progress Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the larger Paris metropolitan spot (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts all over 350 of Atos’ really experienced engineers, presents a modern-day house devoted to research in quantum computing, high-functionality computing, edge, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Location and crafted on Atos’ present web page at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs pretty much 1,000 men and women, this lab is yet another milestone in Atos’ method to build and globally posture the historic web page of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Location as a solid centre of technical know-how. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing research program and the very first key quantum marketplace program in Europe, rewards from an investment decision of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceLocation as part of its ‘Smart Industry’ method, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to guidance the battle against world wide warming

Decarbonization is a essential precedence for Atos. The firm is dedicated to minimizing the world wide carbon emissions beneath its regulate and affect by 50% by 2025 and to accomplish “zero web emissions”, by 2028. The research developed in this new laboratory, assembly the best environmental benchmarks, will aim on innovation to guidance the battle against world wide warming, such as working with quantum calculation or the strength effectiveness of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. Yet another instance is the progress of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be ready to predict and enhance strength intake dependent on the workload and the strength accessible in the electricity providers’ grids.

Inauguration Ceremony

The inauguration ceremony observed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be part of this progress of the marketplace of the long term in the Ile-de-France Location. This new developing and investment decision demonstrate that we are getting ready the long term proper in this article, proper now. We are dedicated to generating the Ile-de-France Location a territory of innovation, a electronic leader at the heart of the economic fabric. This new R&D lab is in line with our programs to promote the implementation and progress of strategic technologies, in individual quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Location.”

“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Location, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab right now which illustrates far more than 50 yrs of research do the job carried out at our historic web page of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic web page we will drive forward our bold quantum computing program and build strategic technologies, products and options that will be bought worldwide, and that will support condition a risk-free, decarbonized future” explained Elie Girard, CEO Atos.

Atos Quantum: a world wide program

The R&D lab will accommodate the research do the job executed as part of the Atos Quantum program, introduced in 2016, which aims to accelerate the progress of scientific and marketplace-relevant quantum computing use-scenarios. Atos researchers developed the Atos Quantum Finding out Device (Atos QLM), the world’s best-undertaking commercially accessible quantum simulator, which is previously staying made use of in various international locations worldwide which includes Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering key research courses in many sectors like marketplace or strength. Atos also lately introduced “Q-score”, the very first universal quantum metrics, applicable to all programmable quantum processors, measures a quantum system’s effectiveness at managing true-existence difficulties, rather than just measuring its theoretical functionality.
