Atos mobilizes technological expertise to fight Covid-19

Paris, 28 April 2020

Atos, a international leader in digital transformation, delivers its technological innovation management, techniques and innovation resources to the international struggle against Covid-19. By a number of direct and husband or wife-led initiatives throughout the world, Atos is engaged on multiple fronts, furnishing remedies and computing energy to aid consist of the unfold of the virus, support the scientific community, accelerate vaccine analysis and make certain enterprise continuity for crucial functions.

“An efficient reaction to COVID-19 calls for international motion and collaboration concerning community and personal actors. We are happy to be helping individuals doing work intensively on the frontline in an effort to counteract the pandemic by sharing our resources and remedies. We are now in uncharted territory, but Atos’ motivation and willingness to aid citizens dwell and perform sustainably and confidently in a transforming digital landscape during the pandemic and in the extensive time period, continue being intact,” claims Elie Girard, Atos CEO.


Supporting local authorities consist of the unfold of the virus

The rising mobility of the inhabitants tends to make containment of diseases more durable and the require to act quickly and effectively is essential at each degree.

Leveraging its community sector and health care encounter, Atos has intended EpiSYS, an Epidemic Administration Procedure (EMS) which provides health care pros a precise overview of an epidemiological circumstance by storing and handling all individual data and data linked to the virus, together with tracking and tracing individual incident experiences, in actual-time. EpiSYS was adopted in Austria in early March to aid handle the unfold of Covid-19 and choose strategic decisions in the present disaster.

Mobilizing supercomputers and device understanding to pace up analysis

Atos’ higher-general performance pcs can depend countless numbers of times quicker than conventional pcs. Whether or not they are made use of for simulation, to establish predictive versions, examine the progress of the condition or produce new treatment plans, these effective devices are performing very demanding calculations that demonstrate to be essential in today’s race against the clock.

Atos’ supercomputers are at perform all over the environment. Two of the most effective supercomputers in France, Joliot-Curie, operated  at  the CEA’s  supercomputing  center  (TGCC),  and  Occigen,  operated  at  CPU’s supercomputing heart (CINES), are furnishing urgent computing obtain to massive personal computer resources to European analysis groups concerned in the struggle against COVID-19.

In the British isles, Atos’ BullSequana supercomputer at the Hartree Centre is furnishing computing energy to operate simulations of Covid-19 protein habits. In addition, the JADE national AI supercomputing facility presented and managed by Atos is staying made use of by British isles scientists from the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Southampton doing work in the place of biomolecular simulations. This supercomputer, owned by Oxford College and hosted at the Hartree Centre, part of the Science and Technological know-how Services Council (STFC), contributes towards endeavours in the improvement of a vaccine against SARS-COV2, anti-viral medicines and to better recognize the molecular architecture of the virus and how it features.

In the same way, Atos’ supercomputers in Brazil and the Czech Republic are also driving analysis all over Covid-19.


Supplying enterprise continuity with risk-free and versatile digital environments

Atos’ systems also play a crucial part in preserving enterprise continuity amid the pandemic. To respond to the challenges that businesses are experiencing with residence business becoming the norm, Atos has developed and adapted a complete place of work companies offering and provides conclusion-to-conclusion remedies, from distant management to wireless technological innovation, even though ensuring the safety of any enterprise setting.

It is also essential to make certain governing administration and community authorities are capable to go on to source essential day-to-day wants for each citizen’s everyday living. In the past weeks, Atos has been capable to warranty service continuity with QoS (Excellent of Company) for energy utilities and water supplies, like Scottish Water, in a variety of international locations thanks to an unwavering motivation and knowledge in these industries.


Sharing our data science techniques with the analysis community

Atos is using part in the ‘Covid–19 Dataset Challenge’, an global level of competition introduced by the White Home, inquiring AI scientists to apply device understanding instruments and methods to aid give respond to to vital queries about the condition. Atos has a devoted group of ten experts doing work on the task.
