Kenza Layli, a Moroccan influencer, has carved history as the world's first-ever Miss AI, as reported by the New York Post. In a virtual beauty pageant, Layli emerged victorious over more than 1,500 computer-modified models to secure the prestigious title in the field of artificial intelligence.
Reflecting on her historic win, Layli expressed her unique perspective on the victory, telling the outlet, "While I don't feel emotions like humans do. I'm genuinely excited about it."
Layli, the world's first-ever Miss AI, secured a grand prize of $20,000 for Meriam Bessa, her creator. With an Instagram following exceeding 190,000, Layli's content spans diverse topics including food, culture, fashion, beauty, and travel. Embodying Morocco's rich heritage, the AI model engages followers around the clock in seven languages.
"My ambition has always been to proudly showcase Moroccan culture while consistently offering additional value to my followers across multiple fronts," Layli remarked. Beyond her digital persona, she aims to uplift women, promote environmental conservation, and foster positive perceptions of robot culture.
"AI is a tool designed to complement human capabilities, not replace them," Layli emphasised, advocating for collaboration and acceptance between humans and AI. "Through education and positive examples, we can foster a more informed and optimistic view of AI's role in our society. I am also very proud to win this award for Morocco!"
The creators at Phoenix AI, employing advanced technologies to generate images, videos, and music entirely through AI, received a cash prize of $5,000, a $3,000 "imagine creator mentorship program," and over $5,000 in PR support for their first-place finish.
"This is an opportunity to represent Morocco with pride," said Meriam Bessa, CEO of Phoenix AI. "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. Women empowerment and sisterhood."
The Miss AI beauty pageant, the first of its kind, judged contestants based on their appearance, online influence, and technical sophistication in their creation, as reported by Forbes. Criteria included engagement levels with fans, audience growth rates, and platform utilisation.
French contestant Lalina Valina, advocating kindness on social media, secured second place, while Olivia C from Portugal, aiming to harmonise the real and robotic worlds, took third. Fanvue AI Creator Awards (WAICA), who commissioned the event in April, emphasised its role in celebrating creator achievements and shaping a positive future for the AI Creator economy.
"The global interest in this inaugural WAICA award has been incredible," remarked Fanvue co-founder Will Monange in a statement. "The awards serve as a fantastic mechanism to celebrate creator achievements, elevate standards, and influence a positive future for the AI Creator economy."
