Get an ibuddy and cultivate creativity

It has been suggested that as children we are filled with a thirst for creative exploration to understand and acquire knowledge. Sadly, research has shown as we get older we conform to the codes of our society, we fear being judged or failing.

The iCreate buddy could be an anthromorphic android that can be programmed and learn from its user. The buddy is paired with a user cognatively, at time of use, the users ability data is assessed and evaluated based on worldwide reasearch stored on a world wide database, that the andriod is linked to.  With the results of the analysis the user or controller can summond ideas, suggestions or teach the android in the proximity of a safe space, resulting in cultivating and expanding the users ability through inspiration, ideas and training. 
The experience can be uploaded to the w.w. database, repeated, shared, evaluated and/or improved. 
iBuddy can be a mentor, instructor or just great support eventually helping to establish a renewed confidence to cultivate creativity. 
The android can be totally customised; Face, features, size, language, accents and voice to represent what may be needed by the user.
The android can be used by a range of individuals or communial groups to reverse the sadated cultivation of creativity, learnt or adopted. The user's disposition is important to the success of the device - i.e. idividuall approach, those who are shy, intimidated, lacking in confidence, communially, those whom just have no idea of how to get on board with thier creativity and possess the confidence to change the situationand those whom cross the spectrum, those needing help remembering and flexing their ability to cultivate their creative confidence. The uniqueness of the 'i Create buddy' is its ability to learn, being an intelegent machine, it can be programmed to learn and think for itself within the scopes of creativity to help build and inspire through tasks and activities, it never tires, it is a serviceable machine, never judges because the tasks, suggestions or actions are based on the cognative algorithm analasis of the user. It is a 24/7 supporting, encouragement and ideas inspirating assistant.It can be used anywhere a human can attend home, office or ouside because it's design and processing is based on humans.

In this challenge, we want to create ideas with young people, not for them. Outline how you’re planning to involve young people or other end-users (parents, teachers, etc) in designing, iterating or testing your idea during the Ideas phase.

using humans to simulate the androids, removing the emotional, judging and critical approach and observing the effects of supporting and encouraging based on the output request from the user.

How might you envision your idea spreading across geographies or cultures so that it inspires young people around the world to cultivate their creative confidence?

By adults or guardians realising the answer isn't directing youngsters but allowing them to express with support and encouragement. Using humans to simulate the androids, removing the emotional, judging and critical approach and observing the effects of supporting and encouraging based on the output request from the user.

What skills, input or guidance would you like to receive from the OpenIDEO community to help you build out or refine your idea further?

Buddy a youngster approaching the experience without emotional baggage. listen, support and encourage though it may cross your grain and feed back the results.
