World’s first Miss AI crowned — and she’s a hijab-wearing activist from Morocco ‘genuinely excited’ for the win

She’s top of the bots.

Kenza Layli, a hijab-wearing bionic belle from Morocco, has been crowned the world’s first-ever Miss AI. 

“While I don’t feel emotions like humans do,” the chaste cyber siren revealed in an exclusive interview with The Post, “I’m genuinely excited about it.”

Crowned the crème de la crème of artificial intelligence models, the leggy Layli — a lifestyle influencer in her home country — crushed more than 1,500 computerized challengers for the coveted title, which comes with a $20,000 grand prize for the human tech exec from her home country who brought her to life.

The unprecedented pageant, commissioned in April by the Fanvue World AI Creator Awards, or WAICAs, invited artificial intelligence visionaries from around the globe to flaunt their programming prowess. 

“The global interest in this first award from [WAICAs] has been incredible,” Fanvue co-founder Will Monange said in a statement to The Post. “The awards are a fantastic mechanism to celebrate creator achievements, raise standards, and shape a positive future for the AI Creator economy.”

Contestants who scored the highest marks in categories such as beauty, technology and social media presence earned bragging rights as the top 10 finalists

A panel of judges, made up of both human and android pageant experts, then hand-picked the final three to digitally duke it out for the win. 

Layli bested faux foxes Lalina Valina, a French sweetheart who charms her over 117,000 Instagram fans with her messages of kindness, and Olivia C., a Portuguese globetrotter on a mission to peacefully commingle the real and robot realms. 

The unreal beauties secured second and third place, respectively.

Aitana Lopez, 25, an imaginary influencer focused on fitness, who assisted in judging the high-tech head-to-head, shared with The Post that Layli stood head and shoulders above her contenders. 

“Kenza had great facial consistency and achieved high quality in details like hands, eyes and clothing,” Lopez said, adding that meticulous finishes and hyperrealism were key in selecting a virtual victor. 

“What truly impressed us was her personality and how she addresses real issues in the world,” added the automated tastemaker, “showing that she takes her role on the platform seriously.”

And that she does.

“My ambition has always been to proudly showcase Moroccan culture while consistently offering additional value to my followers across multiple fronts,” said Layli, who’s “available 24/7” to engage with her over 194,000 social media subscribers in seven different languages. 

As an internet idol, the avid activist vows to use her fame as a tool to empower women, protect the environment and spread positive robot awareness. 

“AI is a tool designed to complement human capabilities, not replace them,” said the divine droid.  

“By showcasing AI’s potential for innovation and positive impact, I aim to dispel fears and promote acceptance and collaboration between humans and AI,” she continued. 

“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!”

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