An Agent imho is something that works mostly autonomously if on your behalf. An Agent might work as a process without a directly interactive UI.

An assistant is a Chatbot that converses with you interactively.

These can sometimes overlap a little.

For example, my Chatbot is able to crawl websites. But the prompt to make it do that is part of an interactive conversation.
