Paris, 19 Might 2020

Atos, a world wide leader in digital transformation, today announces it has shipped its Atos Quantum Mastering Equipment, the world’s highest-executing commercially offered quantum simulator, to CSC – IT Centre for Science. The 30-qubit Atos Quantum Mastering Equipment – named Kvasi – presents the Finnish science and investigation neighborhood the suggests to get ready for the impending era of quantum computing.

This announcement marks a new phase in the partnership in between Atos and CSC, which was initiated in 2018 with the signing of a agreement for a supercomputer based on Atos’ architecture.

Now with the Atos QLM30, CSC delivers together customers from academia and sector, in buy to obtain capabilities and create further skills in the subject of quantum computing. Atos QLM permits the highly developed review of programs of quantum concept, thus developing new systems and alternatives for a extensive variety of challenges.

“Kvasi will carry a novel and appealing addition to CSC’s computing atmosphere. The quantum processor simulator permits studying and design of quantum algorithms, supported by an ambitious person program. All finish-customers of CSC’s computing services will have access to Kvasi”, claims Dr. Pekka Manninen, Plan Director, CSC.

The Atos QLM is a quantum simulation platform that is made up of an obtainable programming atmosphere, optimization modules to adapt the code to focused quantum components constraints, and simulators that make it possible for customers to examination their algorithms and visualize their computation effects. This makes it possible for for real looking simulation of current and long term quantum processing models, which undergo from quantum noise, quantum decoherence, and producing biases. Performance bottlenecks can thus be identified and circumvented.

“We are very pleased to be regarded by CSC as a trusted husband or wife and to demonstrate our ongoing dedication to the competitiveness of the Finnish investigation and tutorial neighborhood. The Atos Quantum Mastering Equipment will make it possible for researchers, engineers and pupils to create and experiment with quantum application with no having to wait for quantum devices to be offered”, claims Harri Saikkonen, Handling Director, Atos in the Nordics.

Finland is at the forefront of quantum investigation. In 2016, Finnish and American researchers have been the very first in the earth to notice and tie a quantum knot, applying CSC pcs to travel key simulations. In 2020, researchers from CSC, Aalto University and Åbo Akademi and their collaborators from Boston University, shown for the very first time how the noise impacts on quantum computing in a systematic way.

In November 2016, Atos launched an ambitious program to foresee the long term of quantum computing and to be prepared for the possibilities as effectively as the threats that come with it. As a result of this initiative, Atos was the very first to successfully product quantum noise. To date, the firm has mounted Quantum Mastering Devices in several international locations including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the Uk, the United States and Japan empowering significant investigation packages in numerous sectors, such as sector or electricity.
