As others have said in the comments, the two instances of "botifed" that you observed are certainly a typo for "botified." The spelling "botified" is in fact also used twice in the article.
The suffix "-ify" /ɪfaɪ/ (which turns into "-ified" /ɪfaɪd/ when you add "-ed") is a somewhat productive, if informal, way of turning monosyllabic nouns into verbs with a meaning something like "to make into [the noun]". "Humans are also becoming more botified" means something like "Humans are becoming more like robots".
Some suffixes, such as -er, cause a single consonant letter to double after a stressed "short" vowel, but there isn't an established consonant-doubling rule for words suffixed with -ify. The spelling botify is reasonably regular; other comparable examples are the brand name Spotify (as Janus Bahs Jacquet mentioned in a comment), gasify (which seems to be a much more common spelling of this word than "gassify"), manify (which actually has an OED entry!), and slugify (which seems to be used as programming jargon).
Spontaneously created -ify words are sometimes written with a hyphen before the suffix and quotation marks around the word.
