Depends on the application I would say. Client-side, when you need realtime processing or when your concerned about data privacy, since there will be no server or third party, which will have access to your data.

You probably want to go for serverside processing, if you want to support highly ressource limited devices or if you want to implement some kind of facial authentication.

I am sure there are lots of usecases for both.
