'My Surrey' is more than just a handy city guide app for both residents and visitors to British Columbia. Like many apps of its kind, My Surrey is capable of highlighting places of interest, jobs and news, but it's the power behind this app that makes it particularly noteworthy.

The smart app makes use of IBM Watson and boasts being one of the first to take advantage of the supercomputer's natural language capabilities. Knowing that search engine results are not always the most accurate, this app is designed to quickly supply answers for queries on city services like filing a noise complaint or fighting a parking ticket.

As well as tackling applications of this scale, IBM Watson has also been put to use for creating recipes, powering toys and property hunting.
