According to the words of renowned jurists, the law can have its ambit either as a science or as an art, but situations arise where one will be forced to judge it in light of both these aspects. The law dealing with Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of this kind. It is basically the science of study and design of intelligent agents, while it takes the form of an art when the system as a whole perceives its environment and takes actions which maximises its chances of success. The concept evolved in the western world in mid-20th Century and has become a major factor which controls the global market in the modern era. With the changing global trends, India is also taking giant steps in this field to be a front runner with major policy formulations. The stream being full-fledged with novel inventions which are brain child of intellects, requires protection from infringement and there arises the role of laws regarding Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs). As the concept is much technically oriented, it is an uphill task to formulate sui generis laws. So protection to these are rendered through various laws in IP such as Copyrights, Patents, protection to Designs and Semi-Conductor, Integrated Circuit Layouts. The seminal aim of this paper is to facilitate a layman with the basic knowledge that he requires while dealing with an innovation relating to AI and legal rights enforced. For this, the paper will be divided into various parts, where the introductory part deals with basic notions of AI, flashing light into fields like what does AI actually mean, the nature, scope and objective of the subject and the fields in which it stamped its authority. The paper also deals with technical oriented aspects of AI in detail and the law protecting and controlling the concept. It also covers the impact of subject in modern day examining both economical and contemporary aspects with changing trends.
