According to reports, Will.i.am has joined forces with Simon Cowell to create a new TV show to find tech entrepreneurs. Dubbed the X Factor for Tech, the show aims to find the next Bill Gates, Clive Sinclair or Chris Curry. As of now, no details about the show or it’s expected launch date have been revealed. In a statement Will.i.am said: “Nearly everything I do involves processors and computers, and when I see an Intel chip I think of all the creative minds involved that help to amplify my own creativity. Teaming up with the scientists, researchers and computer programmers at Intel to collaborate and co-develop new ways to communicate, create, inform and entertain is going to be amazing. Singing and performance create a couple of jobs – but this will create lots. It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves — whether that’s in science or mathematics.”
