Paris, 28 April 2020
Atos, a international chief in electronic transformation, provides its technological know-how management, abilities and innovation methods to the international combat in opposition to Covid-19. By numerous direct and associate-led initiatives throughout the globe, Atos is engaged on several fronts, supplying methods and computing electric power to help consist of the unfold of the virus, guidance the scientific community, accelerate vaccine investigate and ensure business enterprise continuity for essential actions.
“An efficient response to COVID-19 calls for international action and collaboration concerning general public and non-public actors. We are happy to be encouraging all those doing the job intensively on the frontline in an work to counteract the pandemic by sharing our methods and methods. We are now in uncharted territory, but Atos’ motivation and willingness to help citizens stay and function sustainably and confidently in a transforming electronic landscape throughout the pandemic and in the prolonged phrase, keep on being intact,” says Elie Girard, Atos CEO.
Aiding neighborhood authorities consist of the unfold of the virus
The expanding mobility of the populace can make containment of disorders more difficult and the require to act speedily and successfully is essential at each amount.
Leveraging its general public sector and healthcare working experience, Atos has built EpiSYS, an Epidemic Administration Program (EMS) which provides healthcare experts a precise overview of an epidemiological scenario by storing and controlling all affected individual info and info associated to the virus, which includes tracking and tracing affected individual incident stories, in real-time. EpiSYS was adopted in Austria in early March to help control the unfold of Covid-19 and get strategic decisions in the present-day disaster.
Mobilizing supercomputers and equipment finding out to speed up investigate
Atos’ significant-performance computers can count countless numbers of times more rapidly than regular computers. Whether they are applied for simulation, to establish predictive versions, evaluate the development of the illness or develop new treatments, these impressive devices are performing quite demanding calculations that prove to be essential in today’s race in opposition to the clock.
Atos’ supercomputers are at function all around the world. Two of the most impressive supercomputers in France, Joliot-Curie, operated at the CEA’s supercomputing center (TGCC), and Occigen, operated at CPU’s supercomputing heart (CINES), are supplying urgent computing obtain to massive laptop methods to European investigate groups associated in the combat in opposition to COVID-19.
In the British isles, Atos’ BullSequana supercomputer at the Hartree Centre is supplying computing electric power to operate simulations of Covid-19 protein conduct. In addition, the JADE nationwide AI supercomputing facility furnished and managed by Atos is becoming applied by British isles scientists from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Southampton doing the job in the space of biomolecular simulations. This supercomputer, owned by Oxford College and hosted at the Hartree Centre, section of the Science and Technological innovation Facilities Council (STFC), contributes to attempts in the progress of a vaccine in opposition to SARS-COV2, anti-viral medicine and to superior have an understanding of the molecular architecture of the virus and how it features.
Similarly, Atos’ supercomputers in Brazil and the Czech Republic are also driving investigate all around Covid-19.
Offering business enterprise continuity with harmless and adaptable electronic environments
Atos’ technologies also engage in a essential function in preserving business enterprise continuity amid the pandemic. To respond to the worries that companies are dealing with with house place of work turning out to be the norm, Atos has designed and tailored a in depth workplace companies featuring and provides conclusion-to-conclusion methods, from distant management to wi-fi technological know-how, whilst making sure the safety of any enterprise natural environment.
It is also essential to ensure authorities and general public authorities are able to proceed to supply essential day-to-day needs for each citizen’s everyday living. In the previous months, Atos has been able to promise service continuity with QoS (Excellent of Assistance) for electric power utilities and h2o supplies, like Scottish Water, in various countries thanks to an unwavering motivation and know-how in these industries.
Sharing our info science abilities with the investigate community
Atos is using section in the ‘Covid–19 Dataset Challenge’, an worldwide level of competition introduced by the White Property, inquiring AI scientists to implement equipment finding out equipment and strategies to help provide respond to to critical inquiries about the illness. Atos has a focused team of 10 specialists doing the job on the undertaking.
