What is a (chat) bot?

A (chat) bot is a robot

A bot or chatbot is software designed to perform tasks for you by means of chat. A bot simulates a conversation-it seems like you’re chatting with a person, but meanwhile the bot collects the information needed to perform the task for you. For example, a bot can reserve a table for you in a restaurant, order a pizza for you or book a plane ticket. You’ll encounter chat bots especially in messaging apps like Facebook Messenger or Whatsapp. The advantage of bots is that you don’t have to install a separate app to perform this kind of task, you can just arrange it in the messaging app that most people already have installed on their phone.
