Les Clayes-sous-Bois (Yvelines), France – April 22, 2021
Atos these days officially inaugurates its new worldwide Study & Enhancement Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois, in the better Paris metropolitan space (Yvelines), France. The new eight,000 m2 lab, which hosts about 350 of Atos’ highly competent engineers, presents a present day space focused to exploration in quantum computing, higher-performance computing, edge, synthetic intelligence and cybersecurity.
Supported by the Ile-de-France Area and crafted on Atos’ existing website at Les Clayes-sous-Bois, which employs almost 1,000 individuals, this lab is another milestone in Atos’ strategy to create and globally place the historical website of Clayes-sous-Bois and the Ile-de-France Area as a solid heart of complex experience. “Atos Quantum”, Atos’ quantum computing exploration system and the very first big quantum market system in Europe, advantages from an expenditure of €5 million from the Ile-de-FranceArea as aspect of its ‘Smart Industry’ strategy, adopted in July 2017.
Innovation to help the fight towards worldwide warming
Decarbonization is a key precedence for Atos. The corporation is committed to decreasing the worldwide carbon emissions under its control and influence by 50% by 2025 and to reach “zero internet emissions”, by 2028. The exploration created in this new laboratory, conference the highest environmental benchmarks, will focus on innovation to help the fight towards worldwide warming, these types of as working with quantum calculation or the energy efficiency of supercomputers to speed up society’s journey to carbon neutrality. A different illustration is the advancement of a ‘supercomputer brain’ that will be equipped to predict and optimize energy use based mostly on the workload and the energy obtainable in the electrical energy providers’ grids.
The inauguration ceremony observed Valérie Pécresse, President of the Ile-de-FranceRegional Council say:“I am proud to be aspect of this advancement of the market of the upcoming in the Ile-de-France Area. This new setting up and expenditure present that we are getting ready the upcoming ideal right here, ideal now. We are committed to building the Ile-de-France Area a territory of innovation, a digital chief at the coronary heart of the financial fabric. This new R&D lab is in line with our options to advertise the implementation and advancement of strategic technologies, in specific 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 50 years of exploration perform carried out at our historical website of Clayes-sous-Bois. From this symbolic website we will drive ahead our formidable quantum computing system and create strategic technologies, products and methods that will be bought around the world, and that will help form a secure, decarbonized future” claimed Elie Girard, CEO Atos.
Atos Quantum: a worldwide system
The R&D lab will accommodate the exploration perform carried out as aspect of the Atos Quantum system, introduced in 2016, which aims to speed up the advancement of scientific and market-appropriate quantum computing use-situations. Atos scientists created the Atos Quantum Discovering Device (Atos QLM), the world’s highest-undertaking commercially obtainable quantum simulator, which is by now currently being employed in a lot of nations around the world like Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, the Uk and the United States, empowering big exploration applications in numerous sectors like market or energy. Atos also just lately introduced “Q-score”, the very first universal quantum metrics, relevant to all programmable quantum processors, actions a quantum system’s success at handling true-existence problems, instead than simply just measuring its theoretical performance.
