Paris, eighteen June 2020

Atos, a worldwide chief in electronic transformation, CSC – IT Center for Science and IQM, the European chief in superconducting quantum pcs, announce the formation of a partnership to produce the to start with thorough one hundred% European quantum ecosystem which consists of a simulator, a common programming natural environment and quantum hardware.

As component of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Learning Equipment (QLM) to provide a entire programming, compilation and execution natural environment for its quantum processor. IQM will also just take advantage of Atos QLM’s sophisticated hardware characterization instruments, which include gate tomography and numerical sounds modeling. In addition to expertise, CSC will lead an Atos QLM to the initiative. Period one particular of the undertaking, which is made up of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is presently underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.

In just the final 10 years, quantum computing has progressed from experimental curiosity to tangible technological know-how. By enabling engineers and pupils to acquire and experiment with quantum application, Atos QLM contributed to the surge in early adoption and the identification of hundreds of early applications. Combined with IQM’s hardware units and CSC’s deep comprehending of prosperous quantum technological know-how assignments, the partnership will bring the industry a action closer to creating practical, simple and charge-helpful methods for specialized quantum applications in a range of sectors. In the potential, quantum computing is envisioned to present an exceptional improve to analysis endeavours in fields these types of as synthetic intelligence, molecular design of prescribed drugs and environmentally friendly catalysts, cyber security, optimization methods for clever strength administration and money systems.

“We imagine that the speediest way to make quantum computing a commercial truth is via collaborations across the ecosystem,” says Dr. Jan Goetz, IQM’s CEO. “That’s why we’re enthusiastic to companion with trailblazers like CSC and Atos. With IQM they get a dynamic younger hardware companion which is relentlessly pushing the boundaries of quantum physics to make Co-Design and style Quantum Computers for particular applications.”

“As quantum systems mature in the next handful of many years, the benefit and possibilities for end users will maximize. Mindful of what is at stake, governments across the world are funding various analysis courses but the quantum revolution also demands for technological know-how leaders, academic and startups to cooperate in buy to turn promises into a truth. Collectively with CSC and IQM, we will pave the way for the large adoption of quantum systems,” explains Cyril Allouche, VP, Head of the Quantum R&D Program at Atos.

“IQM, Atos and CSC share the frequent ambition to produce incorporateed benefit centered on the ability of quantum computing. We are enthusiastic to be component of this new partnership and look forward to the new comprehending that will spring from this get the job done. As an outcome, we wish to catalyze the research of quantum algorithms by Finnish scientists,” says Dr. Pekka Manninen, Program Director at CSC.
