Software Engineering Bots are applications able to react to external stimuli such as events triggered by tools or messages posted by users and run automated tasks in response, working as an interface between users and services. Bots often include conversational capabilities to interact with end-users through textual messages (in chatbots) or speech (in voicebots) in the same communication channels as their human counterparts. Bots can support technical and social activities in software engineering, including communication and decision-making.
