Atos partners with Total to tackle decarbonization using quantum algorithms

Paris, seven July 2020

Atos, a world-wide leader in digital transformation, announces a multi-yr partnership with French multinational power business Complete, to examine new and more successful pathways to a decarbonized, power-successful foreseeable future utilizing quantum systems. Leveraging Atos’ exclusive Middle for Excellence in Overall performance Programming (CEPP) and Quantum R&D Program, this partnership aims to use quantum calculation to identify new materials and molecules that will speed up society’s journey to carbon neutrality.

This announcement follows Total’s acquisition, in 2019, of the world’s optimum-doing commercially available quantum simulator, Atos Quantum Studying Device (Atos QLM). Atos QLM is utilised by Atos and Complete to examination and speed up current quantum algorithms or produce new types to accomplish breakthroughs in several fields, in unique the discovery of new materials for carbon seize or power storage. Their get the job done focuses, among other matters, on simulating more substantial complex molecules than what is presently feasible with HPC systems in get to uncover more successful and inexpensive adsorbents.

As section of the partnership, Atos’ staff of quantum gurus supports Complete in finely tuning quantum algorithms for optimum benefits and features specialized assist on the Atos QLM.

Philippe Duluc, SVP, Chief Technologies Officer for Major Information and Protection at Atos said: “We are very pleased to be doing the job with our prolonged-standing spouse Complete in preventing local climate adjust utilizing the most state-of-the-art quantum systems available. Obtaining carbon neutrality will be one particular of society’s most hard challenge in the approaching a long time and with each other with Complete, we are dedicated to leverage our mutual capacity for innovation to discover actionable insights and designs that will facilitate our collective efforts to build a sustainable future”.
