Paris, 19 May well 2020

Atos, a world chief in digital transformation, currently announces it has shipped its Atos Quantum Learning Equipment, the world’s highest-doing commercially available quantum simulator, to CSC – IT Centre for Science. The 30-qubit Atos Quantum Learning Equipment – termed Kvasi – presents the Finnish science and investigate local community the signifies to get ready for the forthcoming era of quantum computing.

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

Now with the Atos QLM30, CSC provides together customers from academia and marketplace, in get to acquire capabilities and establish further experience in the subject of quantum computing. Atos QLM permits the innovative analyze of apps of quantum principle, thus building new technologies and options for a vast selection of problems.

“Kvasi will provide a novel and interesting addition to CSC’s computing atmosphere. The quantum processor simulator permits studying and style of quantum algorithms, supported by an formidable user program. All stop-customers of CSC’s computing companies will have access to Kvasi”, says Dr. Pekka Manninen, Software Director, CSC.

The Atos QLM is a quantum simulation system that consists of an available programming atmosphere, optimization modules to adapt the code to specific quantum hardware constraints, and simulators that enable customers to test their algorithms and visualize their computation final results. This enables for sensible simulation of current and long run quantum processing models, which put up with from quantum noise, quantum decoherence, and producing biases. Performance bottlenecks can consequently be recognized and circumvented.

“We are happy to be acknowledged by CSC as a reliable companion and to display our ongoing motivation to the competitiveness of the Finnish investigate and academic local community. The Atos Quantum Learning Equipment will enable researchers, engineers and learners to establish and experiment with quantum program without owning to hold out for quantum equipment to be available”, says Harri Saikkonen, Handling Director, Atos in the Nordics.

Finland is at the forefront of quantum investigate. In 2016, Finnish and American researchers have been the to start with in the earth to notice and tie a quantum knot, working with CSC desktops to generate key simulations. In 2020, researchers from CSC, Aalto College and Åbo Akademi and their collaborators from Boston College, demonstrated for the to start with time how the noise impacts on quantum computing in a systematic way.

In November 2016, Atos released an formidable program to foresee the long run of quantum computing and to be ready for the alternatives as properly as the dangers that come with it. As a outcome of this initiative, Atos was the to start with to successfully product quantum noise. To date, the company has set up Quantum Learning Devices in numerous nations including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the British isles, the United States and Japan empowering big investigate courses in many sectors, these as marketplace or power.
