Atos unveils global R&D Lab to drive innovation in Cybersecurity, High Performance Computing and Quantum

Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), FranceApril 22, 2021

Atos these days officially inaugurates its new international Investigate & Growth Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the greater Paris metropolitan region (Yvelines), France. The new 8,000 m2 lab, which hosts close to 350 of Atos’ really experienced engineers, offers a modern day room committed to investigation in quantum computing, significant-effectiveness computing, edge, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and created on Atos’ current internet site at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs just about one,000 individuals, this lab is one more milestone in Atos’ tactic to establish and globally position the historic internet site of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a powerful heart of technical abilities. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing investigation program and the initial important quantum sector program in Europe, positive aspects from an financial investment of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as part of its ‘Smart Industry’ tactic, adopted in July 2017.

Innovation to guidance the battle from international warming

Decarbonization is a essential priority for Atos. The firm is committed to lessening the international carbon emissions below its control and influence by fifty{bcdc0d62f3e776dc94790ed5d1b431758068d4852e7f370e2bcf45b6c3b9404d} by 2025 and to reach “zero internet emissions”, by 2028. The investigation developed in this new laboratory, meeting the greatest environmental benchmarks, will target on innovation to guidance the battle from international warming, these types of as utilizing quantum calculation or the electricity performance of supercomputers to accelerate society’s journey to carbon neutrality. A different illustration is the growth of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be equipped to forecast and optimize electricity usage dependent on the workload and the electricity available in the electrical energy providers’ grids.

Inauguration Ceremony

The inauguration ceremony noticed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be part of this growth of the sector of the foreseeable future in the Ile-de-France Area. This new building and financial investment present that we are getting ready the foreseeable future proper listed here, proper now. We are committed to generating the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a digital chief at the coronary heart of the financial cloth. This new R&D lab is in line with our designs to boost the implementation and growth of strategic technologies, in certain quantum computing, in the Ile-de-France Area.”

“In partnership with the Ile-de-France Area, I am thrilled to officially open up our new R&D Lab these days which illustrates far more than fifty many years of investigation do the job carried out at our historic internet site of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic internet site we will generate ahead our bold quantum computing program and establish strategic technologies, products and solutions and options that will be bought globally, and that will assistance form a protected, decarbonized future” mentioned Elie Girard, CEO Atos.

Atos Quantum: a international program

The R&D lab will accommodate the investigation do the job conducted as part of the Atos Quantum program, launched in 2016, which aims to accelerate the growth of scientific and sector-applicable quantum computing use-scenarios. Atos researchers developed the Atos Quantum Studying Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s greatest-executing commercially available quantum simulator, which is by now becoming applied in several nations around the world globally such as Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the United kingdom and the United States, empowering important investigation programs in several sectors like sector or electricity. Atos also not long ago launched “Q-score”, the initial universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, steps a quantum system’s usefulness at dealing with authentic-existence problems, alternatively than simply measuring its theoretical effectiveness.
