An upgraded search engine app and input method software designed for Tibetan-speaking users have been officially launched, according to local authorities in northwest China's Qinghai Province.

The search engine yongzin.com was launched in August 2016, which receives an average of 10 million daily visits, said the government of Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Qinghai.

"An AI-based Tibetan word segmentation system has been adopted in the new version of the Yongzin Search app, to improve the recall ratio and precision ratio," said Tselo, director of a Tibetan-language information and technology research center of the Hainan prefecture government.

The newly launched input method software supports input in Tibetan, Chinese and English, with functions including automatic error correction and predictive typing, said Tselo.

Yongzin literally means "master" or "teacher" in the Tibetan language. Its users are scattered throughout China and more than 70 other countries and regions.
