PageRank : entre sérendipité et logique marchande

Abstract : Information retrieval (IR) using search engines is engaged in a deep evolution due to the hegemony of Google, the overlapping spaces between a public and a private or intimate web, a process of redocumentarisation, and the coexistence of regulated and algorithmic models on the one hand and of commercial logics on the other hand. Considering classical models of information retrieval, serendipity is the most proeminent actual modality of IR. Because of its instrumentation by search engines, because of its perception regarding technical and cultural background of users, and because of its diverse instanciations, serendipity raises the question of algorithm's opacity. Therefore, a public debate around the political ecosystem of search engines is nowadays a necessity.
