[F1]Robot –> bot


robot is a mechanical or virtual artificial agent, usually an electro-mechanical machine that is guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry. Robots can be autonomous, semi-autonomous or remotely controlled and range from humanoids such as ASIMO and TOPIO to Nano robots, ‘swarm’ robots, and industrial robots. By mimicking a lifelike appearance or automating movements, a robot may convey a sense of intelligence or thought of its own.

The word robot can refer to both physical robots and virtual software agents, but the latter are usually referred to as bots.


Bot or BOT may refer to the following virtual software agents:

  • Web crawler or Web spider, a computer program that does automated tasks
  • Internet bot, a computer program that does automated tasks
  • Chatterbot or Chat bot, a computer program that converses in natural language
  • Internet Relay Chat bot, a computer program connected to an Internet Relay Chat server as a user, but providing special services or performing special functions
  • Computer game bot, a computer-controlled player or opponent
  • Bots (edi), an open-source EDI software
  • BOTS, a computer game

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Our robot, “Mr Futuri Prudens”, functions like a robot or bot, a little like a computer game bot, but there are differences also.

It is more like a virtual software robot and, because it has some special features, we call it by the name “twintipbot”. It has two main functions (“tips”): it  classifies the past of a company and it calculates numerous alternatives for the future of a company.
