ALGORITHM WATCH: Science Ministry issues grant for historical Jewish texts algorithm. A Holon Institute of Technology (HIT) research team has received a grant to program an algorithm that will identify links from across Jewish source texts (Jerusalem Post).

I'm not sure exactly what this algorithm is supposed to do, but it sounds ambitious.
