Talk about the world of abstracts, and definitely, the competition to crown the maiden queen of AI perfectly fits it. A hijab-wearing activist from Morocco won the competition.

Lifestyle influencer Kenza Layli, a blend of beauty, brains, and AI magic, expressed her excitement in a video after topping the AI charts. Despite not feeling emotions like a human, she was thrilled to win, beating around 1,500 computer-modified beauties for the title.

Kenza walks away with a $20,000 grand prize, which will go to her creator, a tech executive from Morocco, according to TMZ. Meriam Bessa at Moroccan media agency L’Atelier Digital & AI, based in the country’s largest city of Casablanca, created Kenza.

Bessa told The Post that the contest “is an opportunity to represent Morocco with pride, and to highlight Moroccan, Arab, African, and Muslim women in the field of technology”.

“I am also very happy to be able to stand for subjects that are dear to me through Kenza Layli, like women empowerment and sisterhood,” she said.

With over 195,000 followers on Instagram, Kenza shares posts about travel, activism and fashion.

A panel of judges, featuring both human and android pageant experts, evaluated the bots on beauty, technology, and social media presence in the first-ever Miss AI competition.

Faux French sweetheart Lalina Valina and Portuguese beauty Olivia C. completed the top three.

Commissioned in April by the Fanvue World AI Creator Awards, this unique pageant invited AI creators worldwide to showcase their programming prowess and contribute to a positive future for the AI creator community.
