Topic of the session: *Algorithms and Automated Web Curation*

Behind our reading experience lies data structured by algorithms (often
proprietary) which create the meaning of content. Algorithms and editorial
devices have become more and more present and powerful and create important
reading trajectories. Aside from Google PageRank, what are the new metrical
and statistical paradigms that shape by default (knowingly, or not) our
informational world and the putting into meaning of that world? Is the
algorithm a plausible (and sole) answer to the proliferation of data on the
Web? Has the Web become “*un immense bazar où il serait impossible de trier
l’information de qualité?*” [“an immense bazaar where it is extremely
difficult to select quality information?” (A citation by Dominique Cardon
regarding Yochai Benkler's “Babel objection”)]
