Atos establishes Life Sciences Centre of Excellence to support researchers worldwide

London, United kingdom Paris, France – July 8 2020

Atos, a world wide chief in electronic transformation, in settlement with the Wellcome Genome Campus, in Cambridgeshire, United kingdom, nowadays announces its world wide HPC, AI & Quantum Existence Sciences Centre of Excellence in purchase to supply organisations on Campus, and world wide genome and bio-information institutes around the globe, access to rising HPC, AI & Quantum technologies.

The Atos Existence Sciences Centre of Excellence will enhance the present Campus compute amenities with access to primary-edge technologies, these as Quantum, Significant Overall performance Computing and AI, supported by Atos’ merchandise, providers and knowledge in these sectors. Atos authorities will collaborate directly with genome and organic information study experts to support increase Existence Sciences discovery and innovation.

“I am delighted that Atos is signing up for our Campus community, providing better insight into biodata at remarkable speeds and efficacy will guide to impressive new methodologies and merchandise, as nicely as minimizing the study-to-product or service progress journey making a sizeable good influence for the numerous parts of existence sciences”, said Dr Julia Wilson, Associate Director, Wellcome Genome Campus.

 “With sizeable progress designs in place Atos will immediately develop into a worthwhile companion in just our Campus community. Now is the time to electric power our study via the applied use of impressive technological innovation that could significantly advance biodata study. This will guide to better possibilities to translate study into tangible societal benefits”, included Dr Jo Mills, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Centre Supervisor, Wellcome Genome Campus.

In this Centre, scientists and technologists around the globe will examine the distinctive usages of technologies these as Quantum, Significant Overall performance Computing and AI via a wide range of pursuits these as proof of idea generation, innovation workshops, programs and conferences.

Atos Quantum Learning Device, the world’s maximum-accomplishing commercially offered quantum simulator, is previously aiding the study evaluation capacity of companies together with Bayer in Germany, the Centre of Computation  Research and Technologies (CCRT) at the CEA in France, The Hartree Centre in United kingdom and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US.

Researchers will also be ready to gain from Atos’ powerful BullSequana X supercomputers, which produce significant-efficiency computing electric power to assist scientists realize effects a lot quicker. They are being utilized nowadays throughout the globe to assist the recent combat towards Covid-19.

Pierre Barnabé, Senior Govt Vice-President, Head of Significant Facts & Cybersecurity at Atos, said: “We are delighted to establish the Centre, as the potential for collaborative option with Existence Sciences institutes globally is tremendous. Quantum, Significant Overall performance Computing as nicely as edge computing assisted by artificial intelligence hold thrilling, transformative potential for the existence sciences sector, and we are wanting ahead to implementing these in authentic entire world situations by combining study knowledge with our technological knowledge to unlock option.”

The Centre is previously running remotely and is supplying assist to scientists around the globe learning quite a few distinctive elements of Covid-19 these as characterizing the composition of SARS-CoV-two to superior comprehend its mechanisms of infection or modelling the spread of the disease by applying mathematical approaches.

On top of that, two demos are being formulated which unlock the worth of HPC and AI to model cardiovascular anomalies and to speed up the interpretation of medical procedures. These will be showcased as shortly as the Centre opens its doorways.
