Many jurisdictions have a legal framework summarised with "everything that is not forbidden is allowed". And as far as I know the closest legislation and regulation regarding AI usage that can be found in some jurisdictions is that surrounding the "simple" limited scope subject of autonomous driving, but that might be different in yours. In that regard ...

Almost certainly not. My "almost" is because it is theoretically possible that your jurisdiction has a law which outlaws the development of AI. To check for that, see if any of the universities in your jurisdiction have AI groups in the Computer Science department. If they do, you can be pretty confident that it is legal. (Aside: the chances of a lone ...
