Is it possible to offload CPU onto fellow networked computers?

Background: Was reading a book/WEBTOON called “Seed” and their was a seemingly sentient AI capable of connecting to nearby devices in order to handle its excessive computational needs.

Is this something currently possible? Offloading of cpu intensive programs through networked devices while on the move
For example,
1) calculations requiring large numbers of variables {ie a simplified near-future Laplace’s Demon }
2) low-latency virtual reality
3) Reducing server loads by allowing/forcing users and their networked devices to share in storage/processing of application services.

If so, would there be any potential downsides?
1)Accidental privilege escalation vulnerabilities through open connections,
2)Would it be possible to just offload the CPU load, without sharing of any other ports, files, or applications?
I’ve heard of cloud computing and load balancing but is this something you would be able to do on your own?
