Advocate of artificial intelligence
Dr. Amos Azaria
Department of Computer Science

Dr. Amos Azaria began computer programming at the age of 6 and was a finalist in the International Bible Contest at 12. Now he hopes to win the Indianapolis 500 Autonomous Challenge.

“My professional interests involve human-agent interaction, machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning and natural language processing. That may sound very sophisticated, but basically, the main task of AI is to deal with the drudgery of dull, mundane and dangerous tasks that people don’t want to do.”

Deciphering an ancient Dead Sea Scroll to reveal a piece of the history of science
Dr. Eshbal Ratzon
Jewish Heritage Department

Dr. Eshbal Ratzon took on the daunting task of deciphering 36 fragile fragments of one of the last remaining ancient Dead Sea Scrolls. What she discovered sheds light on the history of science.

“My research may be compared to the work of a detective: fitting tiny scraps of parchment together to solve an ancient historical puzzle.”

Developing a non-polluting, efficient, accessible, compact and lightweight hydrogen fuel cell energy pack
Prof. Idit Avrahami
Department of Mechanical Engineering

Towards the end of a pleasurable day of biking in nature, miles from civilization, it's getting dark and you could use some help with the uphill effort. But your bicycle battery is empty, and your cellphone's battery is almost finished. You might get lost without the help of a navigation app. Fortunately, you brought along your portable hydrogen fuel cell. Just mix a bit of powder with water in the device, plug in your recharger and you are good to go for about 8 more hours!

“I deeply believe that close connection with students is the key to success.”

The Beatalk Technique –thinking out of the Beatbox
Dr. Michal Icht
Department of Communication Disorders

Dr. Michal Icht has joined the Beatbox generation to develop innovative tools for speech impairments.

“Traditional speech treatment methods involve repetitive verbal and non-verbal exercises and may not be fully suitable for intellectually disabled adults who tend to lose interest and motivation facing the demands of a typical speech therapy session. Human beatboxing, however, is fun and relatively easy to learn and practice. The results are promising.”

Musa Al-Sadr or Khomeini: Who masterminded the Shi’a awakening in the Middle East?
Prof. Ronen A. Cohen
Department of Middle Eastern Studies

There is a certain sparkle in Ronen A. Cohen’s eye when he speaks about Musa al-Sadr. In his opinion, it was the revered and charismatic Musa al-Sadr, and not the Ayatollah Khomeini, who should be credited with the Islamic Revolution.

“Khomeini conducted the music, but the music was composed by al-Sadr.”
