Jan Wender: “The Atos Quantum Program and the Quantum Learning Machine”

At the end of 2015, the “Atos Quantum R&D” program was launched by the then CEO Thierry Breton at Atos. The program consists of a Quantum Computing (QC) development department and a Scientific Council, where recognized scientists steer the direction of the program and evaluate the results. This presentation will introduce the Atos Quantum R&D program and in particular the first resulting product, the Quantum Learning Machine (QLM). Based on the observation that it is not yet clear how a practical quantum computer can actually be implemented, but at the same time there is a need for a device to develop QC programs, the most powerful simulator for QC has been developed. The lecture will conclude with a demonstration of the use of QLM.
