Unstructured Data Mining
Definition - What does Unstructured Data Mining mean?
Techopedia explains Unstructured Data Mining
An example of an unstructured document would be a letter or correspondence between two or more parties. In unstructured data mining, technologies would break down that letter, looking for specific identifiers and bits of information such as the names of the related parties, the dates the letters were sent, the names of the involved businesses, the amounts of currency or other quantifying bits of data, or the codes assigned to particular products, services or deals. Those kinds of data are mined and then put in a format that businesses or other parties can use for a quick reference or for developed business intelligence applications.
