Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos nowadays formally inaugurates its new worldwide Research & Growth Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the increased Paris metropolitan region (Yvelines), France. The new 8,000 m2 lab, which hosts about 350 of Atos’ extremely competent engineers, offers a modern space devoted to exploration in quantum computing, significant-overall performance computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Location and crafted on Atos’ current web site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs almost 1,000 folks, this lab is an additional milestone in Atos’ method to produce and globally place the historical web site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Location as a sturdy center of technical expertise. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration software and the initially main quantum field software in Europe, rewards from an financial commitment of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceLocation as element of its ‘Smart Industry’ method, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to guidance the fight from worldwide warming
Decarbonization is a essential priority for Atos. The company is committed to cutting down the worldwide carbon emissions below its manage and influence by 50% by 2025 and to attain “zero internet emissions”, by 2028. The exploration formulated in this new laboratory, meeting the maximum environmental standards, will target on innovation to guidance the fight from worldwide warming, these types of as employing quantum calculation or the electricity effectiveness of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. An additional instance is the growth of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be in a position to predict and enhance electricity consumption based mostly on the workload and the electricity obtainable in the electric power providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony saw Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am happy to be element of this growth of the field of the long run in the Ile-de-France Location. This new creating and financial commitment present that we are planning the long run proper here, proper now. We are committed to building the Ile-de-France Location a territory of innovation, a digital chief at the coronary heart of the economic material. This new R&D lab is in line with our programs to boost the implementation and growth of strategic technologies, in individual quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Location.”
“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Location, I am thrilled to formally open up our new R&D Lab nowadays which illustrates additional than 50 several years of exploration do the job carried out at our historical web site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic web site we will travel ahead our ambitious quantum computing software and produce strategic technologies, merchandise and answers that will be offered around the globe, and that will enable shape a safe and sound, decarbonized future” mentioned Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a worldwide software
The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration do the job performed as element of the Atos Quantum software, launched in 2016, which aims to accelerate the growth of scientific and field-applicable quantum computing use-conditions. Atos scientists formulated the Atos Quantum Finding out Equipment (Atos QLM), the world’s maximum-undertaking commercially obtainable quantum simulator, which is presently getting made use of in many nations around the world around the globe which includes Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Uk and the United States, empowering main exploration courses in different sectors like field or electricity. Atos also lately launched “Q-rating”, the initially common quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, measures a quantum system’s effectiveness at managing serious-existence problems, alternatively than simply just measuring its theoretical overall performance.
