Unstructured data are the data without identifiable structure, audio, video and images are few examples. Clustering one of the best techniques in the knowledge extraction process. It is nothing but a grouping of similar data to form a cluster. The distance between the data in one cluster and the other should not be less. Many algorithms are practiced for clustering, in that k-mean clustering is one of the popular terms for cluster analysis. The main aim of the algorithm is to partition the dataset into k clusters based on some computational value. The limitation of k-mean clustering is that it can be applied to either structured or unstructured, not in combination with both. This paper overcomes that limitation by proposing a new k –mean algorithm for extracting hidden knowledge by forming clusters from the combination of unstructured datasets.
