a bot est un petit programme (raccourci de robot), Composante d'un moteur de recherche qui balaye principalement le Web, mais qui peut également balayer d'autres ressources Internet, afin d'alimenter en données les index du moteur de recherche, qui est ainsi en mesure de répondre aux questions posées par les internautes.
Note :
On utilise parfois le terme « robot » dans le sens de « moteur de recherche » alors qu'il n'est qu'une des deux composantes essentielles de ce dernier (l'autre étant l'indexeur).
