Simon Cowell and are working together on a new reality show to find the next big name in tech, The Sun reports. explained the rationale behind the new project, saying "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."
