Paris, 5 October 2020

Atos, a global leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European challenge NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to get ready European organizations for the age of quantum computing by discovering a huge range of industrial and economic use cases, and involved algorithms, appropriate with NISQ[two] pcs, the first quantum devices to be obtainable in the close to future. Atos will coordinate and work hand‑in‑hand with the 11 other associates, top industrial end-consumers and academic gurus from eight European nations around the world, to initiate an active European local community all-around NISQ Quantum Computing.

Although quantum pcs may well not nonetheless be all set, corporations seeking to tap into the power of quantum computing can by now experiment by working with committed programming and simulation platforms, these as Atos’ Quantum Mastering Machine (Atos QLM). Nevertheless, the absence of application libraries helps make its extremely difficult for non-professional consumers to consider and foresee the price that these an influx of computing power will deliver.

NEASQC addresses this hole by investigating nine industrial use cases that are very likely to advantage appreciably from NISQ quantum computing. These use cases incorporate functional challenges that will straight advantage European organizations and citizens: drug discovery, breast most cancers detection, CO2 seize, wise strength administration and natural language processing for case in point. The challenge will then produce open up resource libraries required for these use cases, to really encourage industrial end-consumers to start off the go to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and handle the roll-out of the NEASQC challenge, top the user team that will be designed up of the associates involved in quantum software package developments, as nicely as external end-consumers of the NEASQC programming ecosystem. Atos is also dependable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ factors, in just the ‘technology enablement’ aspect of the challenge.

In addition, Atos will present the quantum programming ecosystem, Atos myQLM, whose vendor lock-in free of charge approach ensures a whole compatibility with the quantum processors designed in just the European Flagship on Quantum Systems. Atos will produce and combine open up resource NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the several use cases included by the NEASQC challenge.

“As an global firm with European roots, we are proud to assist the NEASQC challenge with our state-of-the-art technologies and abilities in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the potential to modify the game in these fields as logistics, production, finance or strength but it requirements to obtain the believe in of consumers to notice that potential. The up coming couple of yrs will be extremely remarkable but also significant for these seeking to accomplish good results in this subject and we hope that our contribution will assistance placement European corporations at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” stated Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Program at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC challenge.

The 4-calendar year challenge has a price range of 4.sixty seven million Euros, funded by underneath the European Horizon2020 application.
