Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos today officially inaugurates its new worldwide Research & Growth Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the bigger Paris metropolitan spot (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts about 350 of Atos’ highly capable engineers, gives a modern day space devoted to exploration in quantum computing, substantial-general performance computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Region and developed on Atos’ present website at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs virtually one,000 persons, this lab is an additional milestone in Atos’ tactic to build and globally placement the historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Region as a powerful heart of complex skills. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration plan and the 1st significant quantum field plan in Europe, benefits from an investment decision of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceRegion as component of its ‘Smart Industry’ tactic, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to assist the struggle from worldwide warming
Decarbonization is a key priority for Atos. The corporation is dedicated to lowering the worldwide carbon emissions under its regulate and influence by fifty% by 2025 and to achieve “zero internet emissions”, by 2028. The exploration developed in this new laboratory, assembly the maximum environmental benchmarks, will aim on innovation to assist the struggle from worldwide warming, this sort of as employing quantum calculation or the strength efficiency of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. A different example is the improvement of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be capable to forecast and enhance strength consumption based mostly on the workload and the strength offered in the electricity providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony saw Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be component of this improvement of the field of the long term in the Ile-de-France Region. This new making and investment decision present that we are making ready the long term proper right here, proper now. We are dedicated to making the Ile-de-France Region a territory of innovation, a electronic chief at the coronary heart of the economic cloth. This new R&D lab is in line with our plans to encourage the implementation and improvement of strategic systems, in particular quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Region.”
“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Region, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab today which illustrates much more than fifty years of exploration perform carried out at our historic website of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic website we will travel forward our ambitious quantum computing plan and build strategic systems, products and options that will be marketed around the globe, and that will assistance shape a protected, decarbonized future” said Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a worldwide plan
The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration perform executed as component of the Atos Quantum plan, introduced in 2016, which aims to accelerate the improvement of scientific and field-related quantum computing use-instances. Atos scientists developed the Atos Quantum Learning Device (Atos QLM), the world’s maximum-accomplishing commercially offered quantum simulator, which is currently getting utilised in many nations around the world around the globe together with Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the British isles and the United States, empowering significant exploration programs in various sectors like field or strength. Atos also lately introduced “Q-score”, the 1st universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, measures a quantum system’s success at dealing with genuine-lifetime problems, alternatively than merely measuring its theoretical general performance.
