(Atos) Atos has announced that it is continuing to enrich its quantum development ecosystem, through the creation of a global User Group of the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM), which will be chaired by a representative from French multi-national energy company Total. This announcement follows the commercial success of the QLM, the world’s highest-performing quantum programming appliance, allowing for the first time to simulate quantic behaviors. This ecosystem is supported by the Atos’ Quantum Scientific Council, which includes universally recognized quantum physicists. It is also further enhanced by partners such as leading software company Zapata and start-up Xofia.
Just two years on from its launch in 2017, Atos’ QLM users continue to grow as the QLM is being used in numerous countries worldwide including Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, UK and the United States, empowering major research programs in various sectors.
The User Group will bring together current QLM customers and their ecosystems of users from around the world, including research centers, universities and global industrial companies. It will be chaired by a representative from Total, Henri Calandra, Expert in Numerical Methods and High Performance Computing. This QLM User Group aims to drive advances in quantum programming and simulation, as well as to develop and enrich collaboration between users and share best practice and support. Feedback will be used to influence Atos’ QLM evolutions and further enhance the technical support that it provides its customers, paving the road towards the new world of quantum computing.
