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

Paris, 5 Oct 2020

Atos, a international chief in digital transformation, announces its participation in the European task NEASQC[1], whose ambition is to put together European firms for the age of quantum computing by checking out a broad collection of industrial and economical use cases, and involved algorithms, suitable with NISQ[two] desktops, the first quantum techniques to be readily available in the around future. Atos will coordinate and work hand‑in‑hand with the eleven other partners, primary industrial conclusion-consumers and educational industry experts from eight European countries, to initiate an active European neighborhood close to NISQ Quantum Computing.

While quantum desktops may perhaps not however be prepared, corporations looking to tap into the energy of quantum computing can now experiment by utilizing dedicated programming and simulation platforms, this kind of as Atos’ Quantum Studying Equipment (Atos QLM). Even so, the lack of application libraries helps make its incredibly hard for non-skilled consumers to visualize and foresee the price that this kind of an inflow of computing energy will bring.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating nine industrial use cases that are possible to gain significantly from NISQ quantum computing. These use cases contain sensible complications that will instantly gain European firms and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 capture, wise electricity administration and all-natural language processing for example. The task will then develop open up resource libraries needed for all those use cases, to really encourage industrial conclusion-consumers to start off the transfer to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and deal with the roll-out of the NEASQC task, primary the person group that will be produced up of the partners concerned in quantum software package developments, as perfectly as exterior conclusion-consumers of the NEASQC programming natural environment. Atos is also responsible for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ elements, in the ‘technology enablement’ part of the task.

In addition, Atos will give the quantum programming natural environment, Atos myQLM, whose seller lock-in no cost technique assures a complete compatibility with the quantum processors produced in the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will develop and combine open up resource NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the various use cases covered by the NEASQC task.

“As an worldwide organization with European roots, we are proud to assistance the NEASQC task with our highly developed systems and skills in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the possible to change the game in this kind of fields as logistics, manufacturing, finance or electricity but it desires to obtain the have confidence in of consumers to understand that possible. The next handful of several years will be incredibly interesting but also significant for all those looking to obtain achievement in this discipline and we hope that our contribution will support posture European corporations at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” stated Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D System at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC task.

The four-calendar year task has a budget of four.67 million Euros, funded by less than the European Horizon2020 method.
