Re: Google’s machine learning
It does seem only normal with Google's big investment in AI and machine learning that they would eventually offer this service. Noting that "preemptible GPUs will be a particularly good fit for large-scale machine learning," this move not only gives some publicity to Google but contributes to the bottom line for their cloud computing services as well.

Wonder how cost effective this might be for cryptocurrency mining?
