  • Quantum safe cryptography – waiting to save the world
    Future quantum computers will one day bring us many great benefits. Unfortunately they will also break many of the cryptographic protocols on which current Internet security depends. Google’s quantum supremacy breakthrough notwithstanding, this is still most likely many years off. However, sensitive data intercepted and stored today, or long lifecycle ... read more

  • Evolving as a modern e-state : why reinvent government services
    While love might not be part of the equation, states do have long-term relationships with their citizens. It’s a kind of contract: in exchange for security, order and efficient everyday services, the citizen pays taxes and abides by the law. In the digital age, one might expect governments to deliver ... read more

  • Evolving as a modern e-state : the essential paradigm shift
    Since the agricultural revolution, people have organized themselves into communities to grow crops, create wealth, make laws and settle disputes. Over time, public administrations evolved to maintain the rule of law; these created huge bureaucracies and tightly controlled procedures to keep updated registers and archives about their citizens. Not only ... read more

Project Description

Atos Quantum targets notably the following developments and industrial integration:
- Developing a quantum simulation platform to enable researchers to test, as of now, algorithms and software for future quantum computers
- Creating an algorithm development and programming cluster to develop a portfolio of quantum applications, in particular for Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, supercomputing and cyber security
- Designing innovative computing architectures to enable applications to benefit from the colossal power provided by quantum and standard environments available on conventional supercomputers
- Developing new quantum safe cryptography algorithms to make applications inviolable by quantum methods and preserve existing safety levels that enable, amongst other things, the secure operation of the Internet, electronic business, and the protection of personal data.

Atos Quantum fits into Atos’ rich technological ecosystem. The Group already has 15 R&D centres and has created a new quantum research and development laboratory in France, near Paris, with a dedicated quantum team.

Atos Quantum benefits from the dynamics of the Group in supercomputing, numerical simulation and cyber security.
To simulate quantum computing, Atos Quantum can already rely on the computing power of the Bull Sequana supercomputer, launched in April 2016, and its program to achieve exaflop performance – 1 billion billion operations per second
