Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a driving force for the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. The developed countries in the world have raised the research and development of artificial intelligence to the national strategic level, and issued their relevant strategies and policies in time. In this paper we try to analyze the AI policies of the United States, England, France, Germany, the European Union, and Japan. Then we talk about the AI situation in China. On the basis of the AI policies and related measures of developed countries, we propose some corresponding inspirations and suggestions for the policy implementation and development of AI in China.
