Paris, eighteen June 2020

Atos, a world chief in electronic transformation, CSC – IT Heart for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum desktops, announce the formation of a partnership to build the initially in depth one hundred% European quantum ecosystem which consists of a simulator, a universal programming atmosphere and quantum components.

As element of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Studying Machine (QLM) to offer you a finish programming, compilation and execution atmosphere for its quantum processor. IQM will also just take advantage of Atos QLM’s superior components characterization tools, which include gate tomography and numerical noise modeling. In addition to know-how, CSC will add an Atos QLM to the initiative. Section 1 of the venture, which is composed of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is presently underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

Within just the past 10 years, quantum computing has advanced from experimental curiosity to tangible technology. By enabling engineers and college students to produce and experiment with quantum application, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early purposes. Mixed with IQM’s components techniques and CSC’s deep being familiar with of effective quantum technology initiatives, the partnership will bring the market place a step closer to establishing viable, useful and cost-effective options for specialised quantum purposes in a selection of sectors. In the long run, quantum computing is envisioned to deliver an remarkable boost to study efforts within just fields these kinds of as synthetic intelligence, molecular style and design of prescribed drugs and environmentally friendly catalysts, cyber stability, optimization options for wise vitality administration and fiscal systems.

“We imagine that the swiftest way to make quantum computing a business reality is by collaborations across the ecosystem,” claims Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re thrilled to associate with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic youthful components associate that’s relentlessly pushing the restrictions of quantum physics to produce Co-Structure Quantum Pcs for certain purposes.”

“As quantum systems mature in the up coming several a long time, the value and opportunities for people will raise. Conscious of what is at stake, governments across the world are funding many study applications but the quantum revolution also needs for technology leaders, academic and startups to cooperate in order to flip promises into a reality. With each other with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the vast adoption of quantum systems,” explains Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Program at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the popular ambition to build includeed value primarily based on the electrical power of quantum computing. We are thrilled to be element of this new partnership and glance forward to the new being familiar with that will spring from this perform. As an result, we wish to catalyze the review of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” claims Dr. Pekka Manninen, Program Director at CSC.
