AI password cracking

This article gave me an AI password cracking idea:

Take the lists of all the revealed passwords, group by person, then categorize the groups to predict other passwords that a person is likely to use (currently, next) based on category match or pattern matching.

Hopefully someone will pick this up to kill off passwords for good.
