The Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM) is a complete on-premises environment with a powerful dedicated hardware infrastructure that allows researchers, engineers, and students to develop and experiment with quantum software.
It embeds a programming platform, high-performance quantum simulators, and optimizers. As a result, applications developed on the Atos QLM can be emulated or run on quantum accelerators without changing a single line of code.
The QLM software simulates physical noise for a closer-to-reality hardware quantum environment sensitive to different physics effects. It provides predefined models that allow tuning to simulate specific hardware, and it also allows advanced users to define noisy gates to get better-suited noisy simulation results.

Quantum Learning Machine Enhanced – QLM E – is a new range of GPU-accelerated Quantum Learning Machine. QLM E offers an acceleration up to 12 times to simulate variational algorithms that a particularly well-suited for NISQ (Noisy Intermediate Scale Quantum) devices, which will be the first quantum accelerators to be commercialized in the next few years.
By promising to apply, in the near-term, computation capabilities that are beyond the reach of even the most powerful existing computers to solve complex, real-life problems, NISQ devices will play an important role in determining the commercial potential of quantum computing. Herein lies a double challenge for the industry: developing NISQ algorithms is as important as building the machines, since both are required to identify concrete applications. QLM E has been optimized to drastically reduce the compilation time of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms simulations, leading to quicker advancement in application research.
QLM E[nhanced] accelerating research in the NISQ era
- Accelerate your quantum simulations up to 12x
- Optimized for variational algorithms best suited for the NISQ* era (up to 30 qubits)
- Upgrade your QLM to a QLM E very easily to benefit from these enhanced features
Accelerate research on variational algorithms using QLM E:
- Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm
- Variational Quantum Eigensolver / Variational Imaginary Time Evolution
- Variational Quantum Factoring
- Variational Quantum Classifier
Atos’ QLM for Combinatorial Optimization environment will allow users to prepare codes to tackle combinatorial optimization problems using either quantum annealing or gate-based quantum computing.
As an additional feature of the Atos Quantum Learning Machine (QLM), Atos then allows users to simulate their code either on noisy or noiseless digital quantum simulators or using quantum-inspired modules like Simulated Quantum Annealing (SQA) or Simulated Bifurcation Algorithm (SBA).
Quantum Computing promises to solve larger optimization problems faster and more accurately, which will generate tangible benefits for industries, such as portfolio management, logistics, antenna location, chip design or clinical trial database search.
Key benefits of using both approaches in the Atos QLM
Better understand the specificities of quantum annealing and digital quantum computing
Compare the benefits and constraints of two quantum computing technological paths applied to combinatorial optimization problems
Prepare code to then run on NISQ accelerators or Quantum Annealing machines using the same programming environment
