Atos, CSC and IQM partner to accelerate the commercialization of European quantum technologies

Paris, eighteen June 2020

Atos, a global chief in digital transformation, CSC – IT Middle for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum pcs, announce the formation of a partnership to build the initially in depth a hundred% European quantum ecosystem which features a simulator, a common programming ecosystem and quantum components.

As aspect of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Mastering Device (QLM) to offer a comprehensive programming, compilation and execution ecosystem for its quantum processor. IQM will also take benefit of Atos QLM’s sophisticated components characterization resources, which includes gate tomography and numerical sounds modeling. In addition to expertise, CSC will lead an Atos QLM to the initiative. Section 1 of the undertaking, which is made up of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is by now underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

In just the very last ten years, quantum computing has progressed from experimental curiosity to tangible technology. By enabling engineers and college students to acquire and experiment with quantum computer software, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early purposes. Merged with IQM’s components devices and CSC’s deep understanding of effective quantum technology jobs, the partnership will carry the industry a action nearer to acquiring practical, realistic and expense-effective remedies for specialized quantum purposes in a wide range of sectors. In the upcoming, quantum computing is anticipated to give an excellent raise to study attempts in fields this kind of as artificial intelligence, molecular style and design of prescribed drugs and environmentally friendly catalysts, cyber protection, optimization remedies for intelligent strength management and monetary technologies.

“We consider that the fastest way to make quantum computing a professional fact is by way of collaborations across the ecosystem,” states Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re fired up to associate with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic youthful components associate that is relentlessly pushing the boundaries of quantum physics to create Co-Layout Quantum Desktops for specific purposes.”

“As quantum technologies mature in the subsequent few several years, the price and opportunities for people will enhance. Conscious of what is at stake, governments across the world are funding several study systems but the quantum revolution also needs for technology leaders, academic and startups to cooperate in get to change claims into a fact. With each other with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the wide adoption of quantum technologies,” points out Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D System at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the prevalent ambition to build added price based on the electricity of quantum computing. We are fired up to be aspect of this new partnership and glimpse forward to the new understanding that will spring from this function. As an outcome, we desire to catalyze the research of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” states Dr. Pekka Manninen, System Director at CSC.
