  • 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

  • Quantum enhanced blockchain – sooner than you think?
    Future quantum computers will ultimately force blockchain solutions to adopt strengthened quantum safe crypto protocols. Rationally there remains plenty of time to act, but proponents need to get their transition stories in place to avoid being caught out as we near peak quantum hype. More positively, the nascent blockchain industry ... read more

  • The Quantum Gap
    For those versed in quantum technology, I don’t mean a bandgap when I say ‘the quantum gap’ – though it would have been an excellent metaphor as this gap is also the difference between isolation and flow. By ‘quantum gap’ I mean the current gap between quantum hardware and quantum ... read more

  • Looking under the quantum hood: Why hardware-oriented quantum software engineering matters
    Whether quantum technology will fulfill its speedup promises hinges on how well “textbook” quantum algorithms will be adapted to and optimized for imperfect physical quantum devices thanks to specific hardware models and simulations. Will high-performance computing systems ever get quantum? The stakes behind this question are high: in theory, quantum ... read more

  • Gearing up for the Quantum Computing Paradigm Shift
    The earliest computers in the 1950s and 1960s transformed how businesses and governments were run. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was decentralized into mid-range departmental computing to increase autonomy and reduce cost. The personal computer brought the same into the home in the 1980s and mobile phones and the ... read more

  • Software moves into the quantum spotlight
    The basic principles of quantum computing and the physical challenges that it faces are well known. What is less understood is the critical role that quantum software has to play in the development of this new paradigm for computing. Currently, the state-of-the-art for quantum computers is about 20 quantum bits ... 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
