Spain Receives Its First Quantum Simulator
(MarketResearch) The French digital services company Atos has delivered to the Galician Center for Supercomputing (CESGA), in Spain, its powerful quantum simulator Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM), according to a release published this Tuesday on the company’s page.
The quantum learning machine, which is the first of its kind to be installed in the country, is already operational. It will allow CESGA workers to develop, optimize and test applications and quantum models by combining an ultra-compact high-power machine with a universal programming language.
CESGA will use the supercomputer for research projects in collaboration with university and industry researchers in Galicia for various strategic areas of science and technology such as nanotechnology, new materials and industrial processes, health and life sciences and ocean sciences. It will also promote the use of HPC and Big Data in SMEs.
It will enable users to adopt new Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques and use these in supercomputing. It will also promote Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Digital Innovation Hub of Galicia, bringing supercomputing techniques to public administrations and extending the use of supercomputing to other areas of knowledge, such as Social Sciences and Humanities.
The basic design principle of the Finisterrae III project is to provide a convenient, open, efficient, flexible, and adaptable infrastructure for different computational paradigms. In this sense, the project will provide access to emerging technologies, especially Quantum Computing, thanks to the Atos QLM, which will enable technicians, developers, and users to train on the machine.
The Atos QLM is a simulator that enables users to develop, optimize and test quantum applications. Combining an ultra-compact, high-powered machine with a universal programming language. It enables researchers and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum software and is the world’s only quantum software development and simulation apparatus.
