I'm no expert in AI, but it was my understanding that, while you need

believe, is how smartphones can now boast "AI processing" for your
photos and how Google's "auto-complete your emails" feature works.

But is the smartphone itself doing the actual processing (in apps
relying on *neural nets*), or is it only uploading the data to internet
servers that do the processing work and receiving the subsequent

The smartphone CAN do local AI processing. I find this video quite an accessible introduction to neural networks [MarI/O - Machine Learning for Video Games][https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv6UVOQ0F44&t=281s]. The video shows that, while it takes quite a bit of work to create the neural network (several plays through, categorising a run as successful or not, etc), the resulting logic can be quite simple ("If there is a block at co-ordinates X,Y, press the Up Key". "If there is a block at X,Y AND no block at W,Z, press the Left Key" etc).

Or, in other words, while it may take several CPU-decades to train an AI what a dog looks like, once it has learnt that, recognising a dog then becomes a trivial task.
