Automatic climate management enables us to reduce repetitive work and share knowledge of different experts. An artificial intelligence-based layer to manage climate in white button mushroom growing hall was presented in this article. It combines visual data, climate data collected by sensors, and technologists’ actions taken to manage climate in the mushroom growing hall. The layer employs visual data analysis methods (morphological analysis, Fourier analysis, convolutional neural networks) to extract indicators, such as the percentage of mycelium coverage and number of pins of different size per area unit. These indicators are used to generate time series that represent the dynamics of the mushroom growing process. The incorporation of time synchronized indicators obtained from visual data with monitored climate indicators and technologists’ actions allows for the application of a supervised learning decision making model to automatically define necessary climate changes. Whereas managed climate parameters and visual indicators depend on the mushroom production stage, three different models were created to correspond the incubation, shock, and fruiting stage of the mushroom production process (using decision trees, K-nearest neighbors’ method). An analysis of the results showed that trends of the selected visual indicators remain similar during different cultivations. Thus, the created decision-making models allow for the definition of the majority of the cases in which the climate change or transition between the growing stages is needed.
