Artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain technology are two of the hottest topics in Devcon Summit 2017, which gathers developers and experts from various fields of technology. 

While some fear AI will displace workers in the business process outsourcing industry, one of the organizers of Devcon said AI also presents opportunities.

"It's not yet a threat to the labor force," RJ Ramirez, vice president for marketing of Devcon Philippines told ANC's Future Perfect Tech Shorts.

Jhonathan Falcutela, Devcon's VP for Programs, meanwhile, expects developers to flock to the session on blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Devcon runs from Nov. 18-19 at SMX Aura in Taguig City.
