France’s Atos Initiates Construction on New R&D Lab Dedicated to Quantum Computing
(GlobeNewsWire) Atos has officially started to construct its new global Research & Development Lab in Les Clayes-sous-Bois to provide a modern space dedicated to research in quantum computing. The new Lab 8,000 m2 lab will be built on Atos’ existing R&D site and is closely connected with the high-performance computing and cybersecurity research programs of the Group.
Atos’ quantum computing research program benefits from an investment of €5,000,000 from the Ile-de-France Paris Region as part of its ‘Smart Industry’ strategy, adopted in July 2017. Atos’ Quantum program is the first major quantum industry program in Europe and launched in 2016. This program aims to develop and market quantum computing solutions, as well as quantum safe cyber security products. Atos researchers developed the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (Atos QLM), the world’s highest-performing commercially available quantum simulator, already marketed to the world’s most prestigious universities and research centers.
