Dr Kobi Leins was named in the 2024 International list of 100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics™.  She was also awarded for Inspired Minds Top 65 Most Influential Women (2023), and The Top 75 Innovators of 2023™ - 2024.

Kobi has had a career spanning treaty making with the United Nations, interdisciplinary research on AI in academia, and practical implementation of AI governance in commercial settings. Kobi's expertise uses her knowledge as an expert with Standards Australia for the International Standards Organisation work on AI standards. She also co-hosts the AI Australia podcast, where they report what’s going on in Artificial Intelligence in Australia today with a particular focus on practicing responsible AI, diversity and inclusion, and AI at scale. What should we be aware of? And how could this affect society in Australia?

She can make the most complex topics accessible, and is an expert in translation, and has a forward-looking perspective with a solid historical grounding.  She provides strategic advice on selection, implementation and operation of technologies to drive business edge; creates systems for organisational and delegation of ownership for complex systems and data; and uses international benchmarking to analyse opportunities and risks in the face of rapidly changing legal and governance landscapes and data literacy and public sentiment.
Having taught post-grad courses, Kobi can engage students and board members alike - and everyone else in between - with a dry sense of humour and provocations that always leave her audience engaged and thinking.
