Expected utility maximization is the foundation of statistical decision-making, but ignores the problem of limited computational resources. Here we consider information-theoretic approaches for decision-making with limited resources including limited sample size or model uncertainty. We discuss sensorimotor learning and decision-making experiments and investigate how such limitations can lead to interesting deviations from Bayes-optimal behavior including robustness, the formation of abstractions and the coupling of perception and action.
