IBM Watson opens up to developers

In a wave of recent open sourcing occurring over the past weeks including Google,  Facebook, Apple and IBM,  Watson joins this effort to attract creative minds to its API. I saw IBM Watson demo at RSNA 2015 and it blew me away.  The demo showed a large saddle pulmonary embolism on a CTA.  What appeared to be computer aided image retrieval and automated data abstraction from medical records including symptoms and d-dimer,  it generated probabilities of top differential diagnosis.... Very cool.
