With the application and promotion of artificial intelligence technology in China, the necessity of systematic research on the new generation of artificial intelligence policies is prominent. This study focuses on the use of policy tools in the new generation of artificial intelligence policies in China in the new era. Combining quantitative analysis methods of policy texts, it explores the distribution and framework structure of existing policy tools, providing reference for subsequent policy formulation and implementation. Based on the analytical framework of "supply demand environment" policy tools built by Rothwell&Zegveld, this study adopts the Content analysis method to build a two-dimensional analytical framework of X dimension (policy tools) and Y dimension (policy objectives), and collates 418 policy analysis items. This study found that the current generation of artificial intelligence policy tools is still imbalanced and uncoordinated, with fewer supply oriented policy tools and an increasing focus on the construction of innovative industries; The application of demand based policy tools focuses on the construction of pilot zones, but lacks top-level design; The use of environmental policy tools is too frequent, and the proportion of internal tools needs to be adjusted. It is urgent to improve the effectiveness of policy implementation and strengthen the integrity of policy combinations while following the laws of policy evolution.
