Paris, 18 June 2020
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, CSC – IT Center for Science and IQM, the European leader in superconducting quantum computers, announce the formation of a partnership to create the first comprehensive 100% European quantum ecosystem which includes a simulator, a universal programming environment and quantum hardware.
As part of this initiative, IQM will use the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) to offer a complete programming, compilation and execution environment for its quantum processor. IQM will also take advantage of Atos QLM’s advanced hardware characterization tools, including gate tomography and numerical noise modeling. In addition to expertise, CSC will contribute an Atos QLM to the initiative. Phase one of the project, which consists of connecting the Atos QLM to IQM’s quantum accelerator, is already underway at CSC’s facility in Espoo, Finland.
Within the last decade, quantum computing has evolved from experimental curiosity to tangible technology.
