"i have one iRobot at home for vacuum cleaning. Is this considered Robot-as-a-service?  Perhaps google will make the robots much smarter with their super computing."

Alex, since its own by you, its not coming under the purview of "as-a-service". According to the definition of as-a-service, somebody has to be offer the service with a billing model.

"Not sure what Google's gonna do with the robots. Perhaps it is some branding or marketing move."

Alex, wait and see; may be "Robotics as a service"
