Our second phase of data collection activities is complete. Many thanks to the 29 pianists who donated their time and expertise to help us. 

Welcome to the home for the Didactyl project at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Didactyl is a collection of web services, data sets, and utilities to support efforts to develop useful computational models of piano fingering.

It represents a multidisciplinary collaboration between UIC's Natural Language Processing Laboratory and its Department of Music.

Partially supported by a recent Provost's Award from the Graduate College at UIC, this is the PhD research project of David Randolph.

Gory detail on the evolution of this project is available but is not for the uninitiated. Source code and data are hosted on GitHub.
