The rank correlation measures represent an effective way to encode contextual similarity information. Recently, such measures have been successfully exploited in various unsupervised learning tasks.In this scenario, this project considers the hypothesis that these measures can also be applied in weakly supervised learning tasks. The main idea consists in expanding small training sets through relationships with high values computed rank correlation measures. In this way, the main objective is to conduct a comparative study of different rank correlation measures which can be applied on weakly supervised learning methods.
