Paris, five October 2020

Atos, a international leader in electronic transformation, announces its participation in the European venture NEASQC[one], whose ambition is to prepare European companies for the age of quantum computing by discovering a huge selection of industrial and financial use cases, and involved algorithms, compatible with NISQ[two] pcs, the to start with quantum devices to be available in the close to long term. Atos will coordinate and operate hand‑in‑hand with the eleven other associates, main industrial finish-consumers and educational industry experts from eight European countries, to initiate an lively European local community about NISQ Quantum Computing.

While quantum pcs may not still be completely ready, corporations searching to faucet into the electric power of quantum computing can currently experiment by applying dedicated programming and simulation platforms, this sort of as Atos’ Quantum Studying Machine (Atos QLM). Having said that, the lack of application libraries helps make its pretty difficult for non-skilled consumers to consider and anticipate the price that this sort of an influx of computing electric power will bring.

NEASQC addresses this gap by investigating nine industrial use cases that are probable to benefit significantly from NISQ quantum computing. These use cases consist of sensible issues that will right benefit European companies and citizens: drug discovery, breast cancer detection, CO2 capture, sensible vitality management and pure language processing for instance. The venture will then build open up supply libraries needed for those people use cases, to stimulate industrial finish-consumers to start the shift to quantum computing.

Atos will coordinate and take care of the roll-out of the NEASQC venture, main the user team that will be designed up of the associates involved in quantum application developments, as nicely as external finish-consumers of the NEASQC programming setting. Atos is also dependable for the ‘Programming Framework & Hardware’ features, in the ‘technology enablement’ part of the venture.

In addition, Atos will present the quantum programming setting, Atos myQLM, whose vendor lock-in free of charge solution assures a comprehensive compatibility with the quantum processors designed in the European Flagship on Quantum Technologies. Atos will build and integrate open up supply NISQ application libraries in conjunction with the different use cases covered by the NEASQC venture.

“As an global enterprise with European roots, we are proud to aid the NEASQC venture with our highly developed systems and skills in quantum computing. Quantum computing has the probable to transform the activity in this sort of fields as logistics, producing, finance or vitality but it requirements to acquire the have confidence in of consumers to understand that probable. The upcoming couple decades will be pretty thrilling but also essential for those people searching to accomplish good results in this field and we hope that our contribution will assist position European corporations at the forefront of quantum computing experimentation,” explained Cyril Allouche, Fellow VP, Head of the Atos Quantum R&D Plan at Atos, and coordinator of the NEASQC venture.

The 4-yr venture has a price range of 4.sixty seven million Euros, funded by beneath the European Horizon2020 application.
