WHAT IS A BOT?
I found the following:
"In short: A bot is a software tool for digging through data. You give a bot directions and it bring back answers.
The word is short for robot of course, which is derived from the Czech word robota meaning work."

The article went on to say that a practical application of "bots" is used in data mining.

In the gaming world, a bot is often a NPC with some kind of AI that you can inject in a game, for example pals in Quake who help you finish your mission, or authomatic enemies for deathmatches.

In the internet, bots are programs that automaticly scan sites looking for email addresses (forums are like honey for such activities) to spam, for example.

In games, bots usually are programs which help you doing something like controlling your figure. E.g. in Unreal Tournament there are Trigger Bots (automatically fires your gun when moving over an enemy), AimBots (automatically aim to nearest enemy), WallHack (looks through walls), etc, etc...
