MediaWiki has a page about this at:

A bot is a robot designed for performing certain repetitive tasks on a wiki. Bots typically require permission to be one, and are occasionally used by negative editors (such as vandals) to damage a wiki's content.

For the system "bot" is a user group; Special:Listusers/bot produces a list of all users who are member of this group. In addition, "bot" is a user right. Edits by a user with this "right" (rather: property) by default do not show up in recent changes. Typically a user of type "bot" has user right "bot". User rights are often called "flags"; bots with user right "bot" are often called "flagged" bots.
