Atos, a leader in digital transformation, has delivered its Atos Quantum Learning Machine, the world’s highest-performing commercially available quantum simulator, to French multi-national energy company Total. Total group intends to use the Atos QLM to support all of its businesses.
Combining a high-powered, ultra-compact machine with a universal programming language, the Atos Quantum Learning Machine enables researchers and engineers to develop and experiment with quantum software. It simulates the laws of physics to compute the exact execution of a quantum program with double-digit precision. Quantum simulation will find concrete applications within the Total group such as molecular and materials chemistry, the optimisation of energy networks, vehicle fleets or industrial tools and seismic imaging and fluid mechanics. “We will develop a quantum approach to different research issues covering all our businesses to explore new ways of solving problems and improve performance and efficiency,” said Marie-Noëlle Semeria, R&D Director at Total. “Atos is working closely with researchers and engineers around the globe, such as Total, to support them with tools to drive significant technological advances,” said Sophie Proust, Atos CTO.
