Introduction
Mixed Reality comprises of (a) Real or Conventional or Face to Face Reality whereby governing and governed, leading and led, entrepreneurs, youth, society members, and so forth, interact with each other without using technology as a dominant medium of interaction. Examples are Real Person, Real Product, or Real Service, such as Bill Gates of Microsoft Inc. giving a lecture to students at New York University; (b) Virtual, Online, Remote, Wireless, Satellite Based, Telephonic, Televised, Web Based Networked, or e-Reality whereby governing and governed, leading and led, entrepreneurs, youth, society members, and so forth, interact with each other by using technology as a dominant medium of interaction; but, Real Person, Real Product, or Real Service is in command and control of communications, actions, and responses of Virtual, Online, Remote, Wireless, Satellite Based, Telephonic, Televised, Web Based Networked, or e-Person, e-Product, or e-Service; such as Bill Gates of Microsoft Inc. from New York virtually giving a live lecture to attendees at Europe via a 3-D or 2-D teleconferencing system; (c) Digital Reality whereby digital rendering of Real Person, Real Product, or Real Service is prepared and used; but, Real Person, Real Product, or Real Service is not in command and control of communications, actions, and responses of Digital Person, Digit Product, or Digital Service; such as preparing Digital Einstein and using it to give a lecture regarding theory presented by Real Einstein, as Real Einstein is dead so Real Einstein is no longer in command and control of communications, actions, and responses of Digital Einstein; (d) Robotic or Synthetic Reality whereby governing and governed, leading and led, entrepreneurs, youth, society members, and so forth, interact with each other by using robotic technology such as Human-Robot-Systems and Robot-Robot-Systems as a dominant medium of interaction; examples are Robotic Person, Robotic Product, or Robotic Service, such as NASA’s Mars Rover Curiosity; and (e) Mixed Reality whereby governing and governed, leading and led, entrepreneurs, youth, society members, and so forth, interact with each other by using any combination of previously mentioned (Real Reality, Virtual Reality, Digital Reality, Robotic Reality) or any of newly developed realities or processes, and so forth.Our Handbook of Research proposal focuses on exploring the application of the latest and emerging technology (that is mixed reality phenomena related technology) to facilitate governance, human resource management, leadership, entrepreneurship, and knowledge society. We also focus on adapting, refining, and extending the constructs of the full range of leadership that is paramount for successful, efficient, and effective governance, human resource management, entrepreneurship, and knowledge society.Our proposed Handbook of Research carries significant scholarly value, and potential contribution/impact. Our handbook will expand the fields of information, medical, business, and engineering. So far, mixed reality is mostly considered to be a domain of (i) physical reality, (ii) augmented reality, (iii) augmented virtuality, and (iv) virtuality. Mixed reality is also currently limited to the domains of computer science, artificial intelligence, and so forth, and excludes robotics. At present, there is no fine distinction between virtual reality and digital reality. Our proposed publication will specifically and comprehensively explore: (a) fine distinction between virtual reality and digital reality, and (b) introduction of robotic or synthetic reality in the domain of mixed reality in addition to exploring conventional reality, and so forth. Exploring and applying the full range of mixed reality (in the fields of information, medical [virtual doctor, virtual patient, digital doctor, digital patient, robotic doctor, etc.], business, and engineering) comprising of (i) conventional, physical, real, or face to face reality, (ii) virtual reality, (iii) digital reality, (iv) robotic reality, and (v) any combination of these four or any additionally developed reality may be advantageous for human civilization in each and every field such as governance, human resource management, leadership, entrepreneurship, operations management, education, training, research, space exploration, tourism, entertainment, media studies and applications, information and communication technology, robotics, social networking, and knowledge society, among others.The current competition for our proposed Handbook of Research is extremely limited or rather non-existent. Mixed reality is mostly considered to be a domain of (i) physical reality, (ii) augmented reality, (iii) augmented virtuality, and (iv) virtuality. Mixed reality is also currently limited to the domains of computer science, artificial intelligence, and so forth, and excludes robotics. At present, there is no fine distinction between virtual reality and digital reality. Our proposed publication is specifically and comprehensively distinguished from existing titles because of (a) fine distinction between virtual reality and digital reality, and (b) introduction of robotic or synthetic reality in the domain of mixed reality. Exploring and applying the full range of mixed reality comprising of (i) conventional, physical, real, or face to face reality, (ii) virtual reality, (iii) digital reality, (iv) robotic reality, and (v) any combination of these four or any additionally developed reality may be advantageous for human civilization in each and every field such as governance, human resource management, leadership, entrepreneurship, operations management, education, training, research, space exploration, tourism, entertainment, media studies and applications, information and communication technology, robotics, social networking, and knowledge society, among others.
 
Objective of the Book
This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest research findings in the area. It will be written for professionals who want to improve their understanding of the strategic role of mixed reality, virtual reality, digital reality, robotic reality, augmented reality, augmented virtuality, real reality, and so forth, at different levels of the information and knowledge society; that is, mixed reality at the level of the global economy, of networks and organizations, of teams and work groups, of information systems and, finally, mixed reality at the level of individuals as actors in the networked environments. The overall objectives and mission of our proposed Handbook of Research is to capitalize on the latest and emerging advances in technology (that is technology related to mixed reality) specifically in the fields of information, medical, business, and engineering viz-e-viz governance, human resource management, leadership, entrepreneurship, and knowledge society.
 
Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in the fields of mixed reality, virtual reality, digital reality, robotic reality, robotics, augmented reality, augmented virtuality, real reality, information and knowledge management in various disciplines (e.g. library), information and communication sciences, administrative sciences and management, entrepreneurship, human resource management, leadership, education, adult education, sociology, computer science, and information technology. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives concerned with the management of expertise, knowledge, information, and organizational development in different types of work communities and environments.The potential audience may be from the whole society but specifically from:
  • Public Sector
  • Corporate Sector
  • Technologists
  • Leadership Experts
  • HRM Practitioners
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Global Stakeholders
  • Universities, etc.
Our proposed Handbook of Research may aid the expected audience to capitalize on the latest developments in technology (that is technology related to mixed reality phenomena) with specific emerging applications in the domains of Governance, Human Resource Management, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Knowledge Society. Practitioners, researchers, investors, technologists, software experts, theoreticians, academia, governing and governed, leading and led, entrepreneurs, HRM experts, operations managers, information and communication technology experts, computer scientists, robotics experts, and the general public may benefit from explorations and applications of mixed reality in each and every walk of life.
