Atos and CSC empower the Finnish quantum research community with Atos Quantum Learning Machine

Paris, 19 Could 2020

Atos, a world-wide leader in electronic transformation, these days announces it has delivered its Atos Quantum Understanding Machine, the world’s highest-accomplishing commercially accessible quantum simulator, to CSC – IT Center for Science. The thirty-qubit Atos Quantum Understanding Machine – known as Kvasi – gives the Finnish science and research community the suggests to prepare for the future era of quantum computing.

This announcement marks a new step in the partnership amongst Atos and CSC, which was initiated in 2018 with the signing of a deal for a supercomputer primarily based on Atos’ architecture.

Now with the Atos QLM30, CSC provides collectively end users from academia and industry, in get to get competencies and acquire further more know-how in the subject of quantum computing. Atos QLM permits the highly developed analyze of purposes of quantum theory, thus developing new systems and remedies for a huge variety of challenges.

“Kvasi will carry a novel and interesting addition to CSC’s computing setting. The quantum processor simulator permits discovering and style of quantum algorithms, supported by an ambitious consumer system. All close-end users of CSC’s computing products and services will have entry to Kvasi”, suggests Dr. Pekka Manninen, Software Director, CSC.

The Atos QLM is a quantum simulation platform that is made up of an available programming setting, optimization modules to adapt the code to specific quantum components constraints, and simulators that make it possible for end users to examination their algorithms and visualize their computation final results. This enables for realistic simulation of current and long term quantum processing units, which endure from quantum noise, quantum decoherence, and producing biases. Functionality bottlenecks can thus be recognized and circumvented.

“We are happy to be recognized by CSC as a trusted companion and to display our ongoing determination to the competitiveness of the Finnish research and academic community. The Atos Quantum Understanding Machine will make it possible for scientists, engineers and college students to acquire and experiment with quantum software package with no having to wait for quantum machines to be accessible”, suggests Harri Saikkonen, Running Director, Atos in the Nordics.

Finland is at the forefront of quantum research. In 2016, Finnish and American scientists had been the first in the entire world to notice and tie a quantum knot, applying CSC pcs to travel crucial simulations. In 2020, scientists from CSC, Aalto University and Åbo Akademi and their collaborators from Boston University, shown for the first time how the noise impacts on quantum computing in a systematic way.

In November 2016, Atos launched an ambitious system to foresee the long term of quantum computing and to be geared up for the possibilities as properly as the dangers that arrive with it. As a end result of this initiative, Atos was the first to successfully design quantum noise. To day, the corporation has mounted Quantum Understanding Devices in quite a few international locations including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the British isles, the United States and Japan empowering major research applications in many sectors, this sort of as industry or electricity.
