Will.i.am says he’s heading back to school to study computer science in the hope young fans will follow in his footsteps and transform their ‘ghetto’ neighbourhoods by doing the same.

The Voice judge, who is already director of creative innovation at Intel in his spare time, said: ‘I’m fascinated with quantum physics. That’s the reason why I’m going back to school this September to learn computer science.’

The Scream & Shout singer is convinced mastering computer science and social networks is the best way for disillusioned kids to escape crime and poverty.

‘If you live in a ghetto and really want not to just change your life and your family’s life but change your ghetto’s life, make your ghetto a good neighbourhood, learn science, try to be like Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs,’ said the 38-year-old.

‘You’ll change not just your family and your neighbourhood, you’ll change your whole city. Music is great, athletics is great, but the guys in Silicon valley and the dudes that make Twitter and Facebook, they’re changing the world.’
