Atos delivers its first GPU-accelerated Quantum Learning Machine to the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC)

Dublin, Ireland and Paris, France – seventeen December 2020

Atos right now announces it will provide its 1st GPU-accelerated Atos Quantum Discovering Machine Improved (Atos QLM E), the world’s maximum-undertaking commercially obtainable quantum simulator, to the Irish Centre for Large-Finish Computing (ICHEC).

The Atos QLM E will be integrated with the Irish countrywide supercomputer ‘Kay’ and outfitted with a assortment of quantum software package programming instruments. As a hybrid HPC-Quantum Computing natural environment, the integrated Kay-Atos QLM E platform will serve the Quantum Programming Ireland (QPI) Initiative for conducting R&D and countrywide-amount expertise growth pursuits in quantum technologies by ICHEC as nicely as other Irish organizations in tutorial, business and public sector.

Featuring up to 12 occasions far more computation pace than the original Atos QLM, the Atos QLM E is also an integral ingredient of the ‘NEASQC’ challenge, in the €1 bn European flagship quantum initiative, of which Ireland is a husband or wife alongside with eleven other European organizations and investigation labs, and coordinated by Atos.

When the Atos QLM E is shipped on-premise, Atos will supply a rapid-keep track of instruction system and carry on to increase the technique all over its life span to be certain that it delivers the features needed in this rapid-going self-control of quantum computing.

Prof. Jean-Christophe (“JC”) Desplat, Director at ICHEC, stated: “As Ireland’s superior functionality computing authority, we’re committed to using the electric power of technological know-how to remedy some of the hardest troubles across public, tutorial and business sectors. Doing work with a amount of associates across Europe, we glance forward to employing the Atos QLM E associated for R&D on a amount of scientific and marketplace-related quantum computing use-cases and supporting scientific breakthroughs in superior-functionality computing.”

Agnès Boudot, Senior Vice President, Head of HPC & Quantum at Atos, stated: “As the 1st Atos QLM E deployed globally, this partnership marks an significant milestone in our Quantum Method. We glance forward to supporting ICHEC on their quantum journey, aiding them examine with their buyers the enormous prospective that quantum computing offers. The remedy will supply a scalable, future-proof, countrywide framework for the porting of hybrid programs, and for the instruction and expertise growth of Irish scientists, and ICHEC’s associates across Europe.”

Atos QLM E has been optimized to significantly decrease the simulation time of hybrid classical-quantum algorithms simulations, leading to more rapidly progress in application investigation.

Atos, a pioneer in quantum

In 2016, Atos released ‘Atos Quantum’ an bold system to anticipate the future of quantum computing. As a consequence of this initiative, Atos was the 1st organization to offer a quantum sound simulation module in its Atos QLM offer. Atos QLM is getting applied in many nations around the world all over the world including Austria, Finland, France, Germany, India,  Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Senegal, UK and the United States, empowering big investigation applications in many sectors like marketplace or electricity. A short while ago, Atos launched “Q-score”, the 1st common quantum metrics reference, relevant to all programmable quantum processors.
