My guess: Never





I hope that's not true, for the sake of progress. Todays clouds wouldn't have happened if AMD and Intel had restricted cloud use of their processors.

Among other things, it would be expensive (in a ton of ways), a digression, require providing direct end user support in a way they aren't good at.

It also would have significant export restrictions: Neural network related asics are very tightly export controlled:

(search for neural network)

My 2c: It would be an expensive waste of time for Google :)

Though certainly, not gonna disagree it would be cool for the sake of progress.
