The speed of introducing AI into production and management poses problems in regulating new processes. In the coming years, the law will face serious changes caused by a fundamental reorganization of the economic and social environment. The transformation that is already taking place at the level of national legal regulation in the leading Asian countries is interesting. China is one of the world leaders in AI development. China intends to strengthen the social basis for the development of AI by creating regulatory and ethical frameworks that provide the opportunity to assess and control the safety of AI. The formation of the institutional structure for the adaptation of AI in society is provided for by the state plan of China. Singapore does not have such a large market as China, but it has a strong strategic position. Singapore recognizes AI technology as one of the four key components for creating a digital state. The Singapore government is currently developing ethical and regulatory standards. Indonesia, which is one of the leaders in the implementation of AI in the ASEAN region, is also of research interest. Indonesia has a national AI research centre whose mission is to adapt regulation to AI development.
