Why hasn’t Bell Labs been replicated?

Is this actually true - could you argue that PARC was a replication of Bell Labs?


My answer is that no R&D labs working on physical technology meet the conditions necessary to create a high-quality corporate R&D lab. Healthy corporate R+D requires a trifecta of conditions. Note that AI research is an exception to the decline of corporate R+D.
