Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos now officially inaugurates its new global Investigation & Progress Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the better Paris metropolitan place (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts around 350 of Atos’ hugely experienced engineers, offers a modern place dedicated to exploration in quantum computing, superior-overall performance computing, edge, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Location and built on Atos’ present internet site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs practically one,000 men and women, this lab is one more milestone in Atos’ approach to acquire and globally situation the historical internet site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Location as a strong heart of complex abilities. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration plan and the 1st big quantum sector plan in Europe, rewards from an expenditure of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceLocation as section of its ‘Smart Industry’ approach, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to help the battle from global warming
Decarbonization is a important priority for Atos. The company is committed to cutting down the global carbon emissions less than its regulate and influence by 50% by 2025 and to realize “zero web emissions”, by 2028. The exploration developed in this new laboratory, conference the optimum environmental expectations, will target on innovation to help the battle from global warming, these types of as employing quantum calculation or the electrical power performance of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. Yet another illustration is the improvement of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be capable to predict and improve electrical power use based mostly on the workload and the electrical power offered in the electricity providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony noticed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am very pleased to be section of this improvement of the sector of the upcoming in the Ile-de-France Location. This new constructing and expenditure present that we are making ready the upcoming proper here, proper now. We are committed to generating the Ile-de-France Location a territory of innovation, a electronic leader at the coronary heart of the financial material. This new R&D lab is in line with our strategies to market the implementation and improvement of strategic technologies, in individual quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Location.”
“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Location, I am thrilled to officially open our new R&D Lab now which illustrates more than 50 years of exploration get the job done carried out at our historical internet site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic internet site we will generate ahead our formidable quantum computing plan and acquire strategic technologies, goods and solutions that will be offered all over the world, and that will help form a protected, decarbonized future” explained Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a global plan
The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration get the job done performed as section of the Atos Quantum plan, introduced in 2016, which aims to accelerate the improvement of scientific and sector-pertinent quantum computing use-circumstances. Atos researchers developed the Atos Quantum Understanding Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s optimum-performing commercially offered quantum simulator, which is by now remaining made use of in many countries all over the world which include Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Uk and the United States, empowering big exploration packages in numerous sectors like sector or electrical power. Atos also a short while ago introduced “Q-rating”, the 1st common quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, steps a quantum system’s effectiveness at dealing with real-lifestyle issues, rather than simply just measuring its theoretical overall performance.

Elie Girard and Valérie Pécresse, President of the Île-de-France Regional Council, discuss the new lab, adopted by a virtual stop by of the new internet site with Philippe Guiguen, Mayor of Clayes-sous-Bois and the entire Atos workforce: Sophie Proust, CTO Pierre Barnabé, Head of Big Info and Cybersecurity Arnaud Bertrand, Director of System and Innovation Big Info and Cybersecurity Agnes Boudot, Director of HPC, AI & Quantum things to do and Cyril Allouche, R&D Director, Quantum Computing.
