(InsideHPC) Atos announced that it has sold its Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM), the world’s highest-performing commercially available quantum simulator, through its APAC distributor Intelligent Wave Inc. (IWI), in Japan. This is the first QLM that Atos has sold in Japan.
Quantum computing is a key priority for Japan. It launched a dedicated ten-year, ¥30 billion ($280 million) quantum research program in 2017, followed by a ¥100 billion ($900 million) investment into its Moonshot R&D Program – one focus of which will be to create a fault-tolerant universal quantum computer to revolutionize the economy, industry, and security sectors by 2050.
Combining a high-powered, ultra-compact machine with a universal programming language, the Atos Quantum Learning Machine enables researchers and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum software. It is the world’s only quantum software development and simulation appliance for the coming quantum computer era. It simulates the laws of physics, which are at the very heart of quantum computing, to compute the exact execution of a quantum program with double-digit precision.
