The Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) is a simulator that will allow CCRT - the Centre de calcul recherche et technologie - partners to experiment with disruptive technologies to better manage the evolution of their applications and to meet the challenges associated with digital simulation, Big Data, and even Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
Several industrial partners of the CCRT and the CEA have already identified and started to work on use cases to which quantum computing will make a decisive contribution.
To achieve this, the Atos Quantum Learning Machine offers a fast and efficient way to test and validate algorithms by simulating physical or logical quantum bits (qubits).
This initiative complements the one announced by Teratec to set up a competence centre in quantum computing to create a dynamic ecosystem on the same site in Bruyères-le-Châtel, bringing together, industry users, and research centres in a bid to acquire skills quickly and develop further expertise in the field of quantum computing.
In the future, the simulator will also be supplemented and opened to other research communities via GENCI.
On May 22, 2018, Atos and the CEA launched an industrial chair with the aim of developing research and innovation in quantum computing.
