This research paper deals with the general understanding of AI technology and its laws and regulations in India and China. It examines this issue from developing countries perspective and focusing on India and China, as they represent around 40 % of the global population and are in the top 3 economies in the 21st century. Their experiences and approach may be useful for other developing and least developing counties due to similarities in socio-economic conditions e.g. food, poverty, employment

AI is considered the most revolutionary technology after electricity and designing a robust legal and regulatory mechanism is a challenging task at national and international level. This paper argues that such regulations should be guided by technological and socio-economic requirements of a country. Developing and developed world have different opportunities and challenges from AI, however, a general AI may create challenges before the existence of human civilization and raises many moral, ethical and legal questions; therefore, it is suggested to develop a well thought and holistic regulatory mechanism (laws and institutions) at national and international level.
