I don't think anthropomorphism is the correct term to apply here. The term applies to attributing human characteristics (intelligence, emotion, two hands, two legs, etc) to things that don't have them. But AI would presumably have a compatible intelligence and possibly emotion as well. Maybe even hands, legs, etc but that's largely irrelevant.
Furthermore, you might have things twisted around a bit. "Biological ends" may not be all that different from "machine ends" -- quest for power / energy / food, survival, and maybe even reproduction depending on the depth of emotion. Just because we're a biological vessel for intelligence doesn't necessarily mean that an intelligence in another vessel won't seek similar ends.
The sad truth is that we still don't know enough about intelligence to reliably untangle chicken and egg in all cases.
