Quantum computing application development with Qaptiva
Eviden, the Atos business leading in digital, cloud, big data and security, haslaunched Qaptiva, its new Quantum Computing offering to enable real world application development and usage, using best-of-breed quantum computing technologies.
Capitalising on Eviden’s strong experience in hybrid computing, Qaptiva will help enterprises, organisations, and research centres worldwide to harness the power of quantum computing and take application development to the next level, to solve complex business and scientific challenges.
Developing real-life applications using quantum computing-based paradigms requires building specialised, problem-solving-oriented set of software libraries for developers to use their own domain specific objects without being quantum physics specialists.
As such, Eviden is expanding its partner ecosystem to provide developers with a wide choice of quantum software libraries to increase value for its customers while offering different choices of hardware. To support the evolution of quantum software, the team has partnered with innovation-driven Quantum players like ColibrITD, QuantFI, QubitSoft, Qubit Pharmaceuticals, QuRISK and Multiverse Computing to integrate them in Qaptiva and to address industry-specific use cases related to automotive, defence, energy, finance, life science and retail. For quantum computing hardware, after the signature of an agreement with its forward-thinking partner IQM Quantum Computers in 2022, Eviden is now also collaborating with French technology leaders Quandela and Pasqal for joint commercial offers.
Qaptiva offers all-in-one capabilities and a best-in-class development environment to write code once and seamlessly run it on different quantum hardware, either on-premises or through the cloud. Designed to encompass in one place all quantum technologies provided by Qaptiva software partners, this platform provides developers, researchers, and scientists with all the necessary tools and resources (libraries, connectors, emulators, and compilers) to program, optimise, compile, emulate, and run code on a Quantum Processing Unit (QPU), delivering tangible results very rapidly without waiting for Large Scale Quantum (LSQ).
In addition to a complete and simplified quantum-application development environment, Qaptiva also offers emulation capabilities to perform perfect advanced emulations with different noise models, up to 41 logical Qubits. The offer leverages the technology available in the Qaptiva 800, the new generation of the previously known “Atos Quantum Learning Machine”.
For application development and emulation, Qaptiva supports all the most widely used quantum programming paradigms (gate-based, annealing, and analog) and other technologies such as photonic quantum computing. Qaptiva includes a complete quantum computing consulting practice, from training to application development to help enterprises, organizations and research centers understand, and identify real use cases, and develop their future production-ready QC-based solutions.
