Do actuaries avoid prior art?


We don't feel we avoid using it (that implies choosing not to use it) however there are some


Barriers to using prior art


Can't find it - Might use something if we knew where to look


Time - in many roles there isn't sufficient time to invest in trying to improve methods


Lack of pressure to innovate - Often standard techniques are good enough to get the job done.


Comfort factor - not sure how big the benefit is going to be, or how reliable the technique is.


Barriers to sharing prior art


IP concerns - are we giving away our edge, is it company sensitive
