Suppose I have 2 quantum machines: The first is 2 qubits machine and the second is 4 qubits. Is there a way to parallelize these machines and get a result as if I had 6 quibts machine? Is there a formula to create from several quantum machine another quantum machine that is "stronger" (based on more qubits than each of the separated quantum machines)?

If you network them together, they can send qubits to each other and thereby act like a combined computer.

For example, in "Loophole-free Bell inequality violation with superconducting circuits", two superconducting chips were sending qubits to each other through a waveguide in a cryogenic pipe:

This link had a ~20% error rate, so your combined quantum computer would be very bad, but it shows the idea.

    $\begingroup$ @Avi Why wouldn't there be. They can both apply operations to the qubits they have, and they can share qubits back and forth. $\endgroup$ Feb 25 at 21:46
