+<strong>Pig</strong> is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists
of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure
for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig programs is that their structure
is amenable to substantial parallelization, which in turns enables them to handle very large
data sets. 
+</p>
+
+<p>
+At the present time, Pig's infrastructure layer consists of a compiler that produces sequences
of Map-Reduce programs, for which large-scale parallel implementations already exist (e.g.,
the Hadoop subproject). Pig's language layer currently consists of a textual language called
Pig Latin, which has the following key properties: 
+</p>
+
+
+<ul>
+
+<li>
+<strong>Ease of programming.</strong> It is trivial to achieve parallel execution
of simple, "embarrassingly parallel" data analysis tasks. Complex tasks comprised of multiple
interrelated data transformations are explicitly encoded as data flow sequences, making them
easy to write, understand, and maintain.</li> 
+
+
+
+<li>
+<strong>Optimization opportunities.</strong> The way in which tasks are encoded
permits the system to optimize their execution automatically, allowing the user to focus on
semantics rather than efficiency.</li> 
+
+
+<li>
+<strong>Extensibility.</strong> Users can create their own functions to do special-purpose
processing.</li> 
+
+</ul>
