Will.i.am from The Voice and Simon Cowell might be television rivals, but the two are looking to collaborate on a project that will be an X Factor spin-off but for the tech industry. The aim of the show is to discover new tech talents and find the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg

The Black Eyed Peas star explained that X Factor for Tech is “going to be out of this world,” and added that, “Singing and performance create a couple of jobs. But this will lots. It’s about getting in touch with youth and giving them a platform to express themselves.”

Will.i.am announced the collaboration when he recently spoke at a technology conference in London.
