The compatibility issues among the characteristics of data involving numerical as well as categorical attributes (mixed) laid many challenges in pattern recognition field. Clustering is often used to group identical elements and to find structures out of data. However, clustering categorical data poses some notable challenges. Particularly clustering diversified (mixed) data constitute bigger challenges because of its range of attributes. Computations on such data are merely too complex to match the scales of numerical and categorical values due to its ranges and conversions. This chapter is intended to cover literature clustering algorithms in the context of mixed attribute unlabelled data. Further, this chapter will cover the types and state of the art methodologies that help in separating data by satisfying inter and intracluster similarity. This chapter further identifies challenges and Future research directions of state-of-the-art clustering algorithms with notable research gaps.
