IFA 2012 latest...
The Black Eyed Peas frontman, and current X Factor judge, was reported as being in talks with Cowell to bring out a show that will look for young tech entrepreneurs with the potential to be the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs.
Will.I.Am is currently the "director of creative innovation" at Intel and already has his finger in a number of technological pies.
Given the popularity of the X Factor over the years, the Black Eyed Pea believes he and Cowell can do the same for youngsters interested in tech.
“Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots," he said.
“It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves — whether that’s in science or mathematics.”
