(GlobeNewsWire) This Atos announcement welcomes the French government’s initiative and development of the national strategy on quantum technologies, announced today by President Emmanuel Macron.
“The plan announced today for the development of quantum technologies is quite remarkable and we are very honored to have been associated with this announcement. Quantum computing promises considerable progress in strategic areas for our society, such as health, chemistry, finance and the fight against global warming and decarbonization. Faced with these major socio-economic challenges, it is essential to set up public-private partnerships and foster cooperation between governments, academic researchers, users and private companies. France’s national strategy is equal to the revolution to come and we are proud to be among the players who will participate in making it a reality,” said Elie Girard, Atos CEO.
With unique expertise in Europe and innovative technologies such as the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s most powerful quantum simulator, Atos is already working closely with national players such as GENCI (Grand Equipement National de Calcul) and the CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique), as well as the start-up Pasqal. The national quantum strategy now offers Atos the opportunity to accelerate its Atos Quantum program and strengthen its contribution to the French quantum ecosystem, with a view to offering its customers the first benefits of quantum computing in the NISQ (Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum) era as soon as possible.
