Atos delivers the first Quantum Learning Machine in Spain to
Atos book first Quantum learning machine in Spain for CESGA
Santiago de Compostela (Galicia, Spain), Paris (France) September 28, 2021 – Atos announces today that it has delivered its Atos quantum learning machine (QLM), the the world’s most successful commercially available quantum simulator, Galician intensive computing center (CESGA). It is the first quantum simulator installed in Spain, positioning CESGA as a pioneer in quantum simulation.
The Atos quantum learning machine (QLM) which is now operational, will allow technicians, developers and users of CESGA to develop, optimize and test quantum applications and models. It will be used for European research projects on which CESGA is currently working, in collaboration with university and industrial researchers, in the fields of science and technology such as nanotechnology, new materials and industrial processes, health and life sciences and marine sciences. Atos will also provide a training program and continue to improve the system throughout its lifespan to ensure it delivers the required functionality.
This delivery and installation of Quantum learning machine Atos QLM-30 simulator, which will enable the development, optimization and testing of quantum applications, is part of Atos’ previous contract for the supply and installation of the scientific and technical supercomputing and data storage solution general purpose Finisterre III.
Agnes Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, noted “We are honored to provide the first quantum simulator in Spain and we are looking forward to supporting CESGA and the Spanish scientific and research community to develop and experiment with quantum software to prepare for the coming era of quantum computing.
Ready for the quantum age
Combining an ultra-compact and powerful machine with a universal programming language, the Atos quantum learning machine enables researchers and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum software. It is the only quantum software development in the world and
simulation device for the coming quantum computing era. The Atos QLM simulates the behavior of a quantum computer, which means that quantum algorithms can be developed without the need for quantum hardware. The system paves the way for the optimization of numerical quantum simulation in the first intermediate-scale quantum computers to be commercialized in the coming years (called NISQ – Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum).
Atos QLM Community
Since its launch, the Atos QLM user community has grown steadily. The platform is used in many countries around the world including Austria, Brazil, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Senegal, the United Kingdom and the United States, thus strengthening major research programs in various sectors such as industry or energy.
Atos ‘ambitious program to anticipate the future of quantum computing – the’Atos Quantum‘ program – was launched in November 2016. Thanks to this initiative, Atos was the first organization to offer a quantum noise simulation module within the Atos QLM and the first universal quantum metric reference “Q-score”, applicable to all quantum processors.
