We investigate the relation between information (in the Shannon sense) and decision-making. It turns out that information is a prime resource for any agent or robot. Taking this into account permits one to formulate principles of arranging information in the decision-making process of such an agent. Thus, the necessities of information processing imply certain types of invariants and architectures – or also principles by which behaviour should naturally be selected.

This has ramifications for the organization of the sensorimotor loop and, by implication, sensorics and actuatorics and behaviours. My talk will discuss a number of scenarios illustrating these points.
