[ONLINE] Introduction to Atos QLM and how to use it to run your first quantum circuit (EuroCC)



Jiří Tomčala (IT4Innovations, VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava), Marek Lampart (IT4Innovations)


This course is aimed at presenting the main features of the Atos QLM software stack, and at providing two examples of quantum software that is run on Atos QLM’s emulated environment.

The Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) embeds a programming platform and a high-performance quantum simulator. The Atos QLM allows researchers, engineers, and students to develop and experiment with quantum software. Powered by a powerful dedicated hardware infrastructure, the Atos QLM emulates execution as a genuine quantum computer would. The Atos QLM computes the exact execution of a quantum program, with double digit precision. It simulates the laws of physics, which are at the very heart of quantum computing. Currently, the Atos QLM is capable of simulating up to 41 qubits.

The Atos myQLM is a python package that is provided with open source interoperability connectors with frameworks such as Qiskit, Cirq, ProjectQ, or Forest™. It was designed to democratize quantum computing by allowing researchers, students, and developers to create and simulate quantum circuits on their laptops. It is fully compatible with the Atos QLM: users are able to launch their myQLM programs on their organization’s Atos QLM to benefit from larger simulation capabilities and advanced features like quantum circuit optimizers and noisy simulators. With Atos myQLM it is possible to efficiently simulate up to 20 qubits.
