(HPCWire) Atos, CSC – IT Center for Science and IQM 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.
“IQM, Atos and CSC share the common ambition to create added value based on the power of quantum computing. We are excited to be part of this new partnership and look forward to the new understanding that will spring from this work. As an outcome, we wish to catalyze the study of quantum algorithms by Finnish researchers,” says Dr. Pekka Manninen, Program Director at CSC.
