Yes. The strongly typed linear algebra project (Vectro) does exactly
that. With an added guarantee that attempting to add or multiply
matrices of inappropriate sizes is a type error. Thus typical errors
like forgetting to transpose a matrix/vector are reported before the
computation starts. The paper shows a few examples, including a larger
example of a learning algorithm.
