A method involves measuring and monitoring usage of data stored on a user device by software applications installed on the user device, the data being generated by resources of the user device. The method includes for each resource, assigning a resource sensitivity value, the resource sensitivity values of different resources being adapted to enable discrimination among resources based on sensitivity of the data they generate; for each application, calculating a respective application access level to the data by combining through a first predetermined function the resource sensitivity values of the resources that generate data accessed by the application; calculating a device access level to the data by the applications, the device access level being calculated by combining through a second predetermined function the calculated application access levels of the applications installed on the device; and associating with each application a respective indication of the calculated device access level.

A system for managing house appliances supplied through a power grid is provided. Each house appliance operates according to at least one corresponding operative mode. Each operative mode comprises a sequence of operative phases. The system comprises at least one control unit interfaced with the house appliances for exchanging data. The at least one control unit collects power profile data comprising timing and electric power consumption data of each operative phase of each operative mode of the house appliances; generates a time schedule of the house appliances operations by distributing in time the execution of the operative phases thereof such that total power consumption of house appliances is kept under a maximum power threshold of the power grid; and controls the operation of the appliances based on the time schedule. The at least one control unit is configured to generate the time schedule by exploiting a Particle Swarm Optimization approach.

Disclosed herein is a method for serving an aggregate flow in a communication network node, the aggregate flow including a plurality of individual flows. The method includes identifying in the aggregate flow, based on serving resources allocated to the network node, individual flows that may be served without substantial detriment to perceived performance, and serving the identified individual flows with priority in respect of the remaining individual flows in the aggregate flow. The method allows the presence of individual flows that may not be served without substantial detriment to perceived performance due to shortage of serving resources to be notified to an external control entity.
