Unstructured Data

Unstructured data is information that does not fit into a predefined data model or schema. Typically text-heavy, such as form responses and social media conversations, unstructured data also encompasses images, video, and audio. Industry-specific file types such as VCF (genomics), KDF (semiconductors), or HDF5 (aeronautics) are included in this category.
