Pokerbot is a computer program that plays poker. Pokerbot is the most frequently used short name for online poker robot. It can refer to the engine (or "brain") that computes the play, given the game information (hole cards, board, players info, etc.); or it can refer to a software as a whole that is able to play poker at online sites just as a human is.
