Similarity information based on contextual analysis has great potential for various machine learning and information retrieval tasks. Rank correlation measures provide an effective tool for contextual similarity analysis. Recently, these measures have been successfully exploited in unsupervised and weakly supervised domains. In this scenario, the project aims to evaluate and investigate novel measures. The main idea consists of evaluating existing measures and investigating the development of metrics that can increase the effectiveness of the methods in which they are used. (AU)
