Salvador (Brazil) and Paris (France), 5 May possibly 2021

Atos and SENAI CIMATEC, just one of Brazil’s foremost schooling, research and innovation institutes, announce Brazil’s 1st Center of Excellence in Quantum Computing dedicated to the business sector.

Positioned in Salvador, Bahia, the Latin The usa Quantum Computing Center (LAQCC) aims to endorse the adoption of quantum systems, supply training to develop a nearby quantum computing workforce and inspire scientific research in the most varied areas, these types of as chemistry and biology. The LAQCC will help business consumers to develop technological roadmaps and perform effect scientific studies, algorithm investigations and applied research projects.

“SENAI CIMATEC will be the 1st establishment focused on Quantum Computing Technologies – QCT in Bahia and just one of the handful of nationwide. Our partnership with Atos positions us as a new player in the scientific and technological improvement of the disruptive department of Quantum Computing”, states the director of Technologies and Innovation at SENAI CIMATEC, Leone Peter Andrade.

The Center of Excellence will host Brazil’s 1st Atos Quantum Finding out Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s most powerful quantum simulator. Named CIMATEC KUATOMU, the Atos QLM will leverage common supercomputing components to simulate quantum programs and algorithms of up to 35 qubits. The Centre will aim on the exploration of the distinctive purposes of quantum computing and its integration with Substantial Efficiency Computing (HPC systems), in line with Atos’ ambition to launch a quantum accelerator by 2023.

With this infrastructure, SENAI CIMATEC will assist consumers harness the energy of supercomputing and quantum computing to deliver breakthroughs in areas that deal with huge volumes of knowledge, these types of as drugs, meteorology, geology, physics and oil and gasoline.
